The camera leads our gaze closely across the surface of photographs. Small details of different moments become part of a movement: the searching, caressing gesture of filming. Projected on two adjoined screens, the images move together, towards each other and away again. The gaze becomes tactile, connecting what is seemingly separated by time, by distance and by the borders of the photographic image.
Myrthe Baptist (BE, 1994) is an artist and filmmaker based in Brussels. She works mainly with moving image, often starting from photographs, notes, letters and archival material. She has obtained a Master of Fine Arts at KASK School of Arts in Ghent.
