Slow pan shots, endless loops, a somnambulistic slipstream of images, and puzzling plot lines: Teresa Hubbard (*1965 in Dublin) and Alexander Birchler (*1962 in Baden, Switzerland) say that Eadweard Muybridge’s early motion pictures and the silent films by Thomas Edison and the Lumière Brothers influenced the deliberately slow cinematography of their fascinating and elaborately produced videos. No Room to Answer examines the artist couple’s interest in the early history of photography and film and demonstrates how their picturesque, brilliantly colored images craft stories without a beginning or an end in vague, repetitious loops, in which calm and movement are precisely balanced and which veer in an etheric zone between reality and dream.
Starting with Hubbard and Birchler’s early series of staged photographs, this monograph presents all the artists’ key works from 1991 to the present and includes three essays as well as a comprehensive interview with the artists about their most recent work.
