24th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Matters Of Time
A matrix of experiences and reflections from the author’s journeys between Berlin and Hiroshima was constructed by gushing together systems containing from 4 (or 2 times 2) to 625 (25x25) artist’s Facebook statuses in 7 identically long intervals of time. A suggestive accumulation of images evokes oversaturation in which the meaning and uniqueness of individual moments get lost.
"There is a tension between past en presence I like to explore. Contemplating the riddles of cause and effect, may be. No text, no word, experience. Nothing logical within a conceptual framework." T. Mohr
biographyNetherlands-based German filmmaker Thomas Mohr (1954) has been making video art since the 1980s, creating works characterized by a systematic approach and remarkable constancy. Mohr’s archive contains more than 500,000 photographs whose original content he abstracts by compiling them together, thus exploring the processes of generated images and the transformation of perception into experience. The Ji.hlava IDFF has previously shown e.g. his films Dialectics (2018) and One-1-2 (2017).
