SONIC ACTS FESTIVAL – THE GEOLOGIC IMAGINATION
Jananne Al-Ani: Shadow Sites
28 February 2015 – Paradiso, Amsterdam, the Netherlands
In the last five years Jananne Al-Ani has developed a portfolio of film and photographic works titled The Aesthetics of Disappearance: A Land Without People, which explores the disappearance of the body in contested and highly charged landscapes by examining the development of film and photography in relation to the technology of flight. In addition to screening the films Shadow Sites I (2010) and Shadow Sites II (2011), a range of archival material will be presented, including unpublished reconnaissance photographs from WWI and the work of early aerial photography pioneers.
