RAPTURES OF THE DEEP: Visual

RAPTURE OF THE DEEP – FILM UNDER WATER
Exhibition from July 1, 2022 to February 26, 2023

The exhibition, co-sponsored by Patrons Circle DFF, explores the world between light and darkness, surface and depth, life and death, which makes filmmakers dive into the water again and again, by means of numerous artfully designed film compilations. An interplay of moving image, light and sound creates an audiovisual experience that transports visitors into a rapture and makes them hold their breath, just like the diving film characters on the screens surrounding them.
