After its autonomization in the 1920s, medial reality production began to gradually slip out of our realm of influence. By means of selected avant-garde movies Daniel Egg examines the medium film, sharpening our awareness of the concise distinction between the ephemeral and the concrete.
Focusing on impurities, emulsion resolutions, torn films, he separates essence from reality, incorporates transience and memory, makes the seemingly invisible visible, and in turn, creates analogous sculptures.
Egg concentrates on developing new transformations, evokes the entire spectrum of light with white paint, and thus opens up distinctive interpretations of reality. It is not the narrative which turnsout to be the essence of the medium and perception, but the flare-up of lapses and flaws which serves to verify reality. (Elisabeth Fiedler)
