Traces of the Invisible

Installation of Negative Film Photographs

First Exhibitions in 2018

This installation of negative film photographs is one of the works of the Arctica exhibition and presents Agathe Simon’s investigation into the Invisible, following the traces of an Inuit legend quoted by Gabriela Conti in her posthumous novel, Vivre.

The photographic films were immersed at the same location where the photographs were shot; their degradation by the Arctic Ocean reveals a balance between the visible and the invisible.
