Over the last few decades, we have witnessed the recuperation of experimental film by galleries and museums as well as its resurrection as a plastic work of art, all of this being a symptom of artists’ general tendency to deploy always different formats and the testimony of a shared nostalgia towards the cinema’s early days. What does it mean for artists to address seemingly contradictory media such as film and sculpture? How does it change the gallery’s viewing conditions and how does it affect the audience’s reception?

Independent curator and editor Gloria Moure conversed with curators Caroline Bourgeois and Sabine Breitwieser about the exhibition of cinematic sculpture or three-dimensional cinema in the art space.
