An exploration of the transition between still and moving images sees historic cinematic techniques and apparatus set alongside works from contemporary artists.
Inspired by the Barnes Brothers’ early cinema collection at Hove Museum, Twixt Two Worlds takes the technique of double exposure and the visual effect of superimposition as starting points to explore the development of still and moving image across photography, magic lantern slides and cinema.
Objects such as early cine cameras (c.1900) and magic lanterns (c.1850) sit alongside moving image works by contemporary artists like Douglas Gordon, Saskia Olde Wolbers and Jane & Louise Wilson.
