The time of spectacle

Photography exhibition by Asaf Kliger – Kliger Gallery, Lund
22 – 28 November 2021
Opening hours 11:00-17:30 

The project is photographed by long exposure & multi exposures while the exposure is measured and determined by the length of the event or the sequence.

The single picture contains the time and memory and asks of the viewer to experience photography in a different manner than he’s accustomed to.

The selection of long exposure is made according to the type of the event, which for most people is a passive experience.

The passiveness of the viewer at the event means it isn’t possible for the viewer to be active and makes him feel that the event is real and true, while the event and the place is simulation and sometimes is simulacra.

The result of the long exposure is that the spectator sometimes exists as a ghost and sometimes doesn’t exist at all. But the place always exists and its glory can be captured.

The project raises the question about objectivity in representing and realism in the photography world.
