A portrait of a Dutch community using photographs and images found in the regional newspaper or in the archive of local companies. Artist's book: drawings in very large format with a dust jacket-cum-poster, an anthropological reading of American popular culture. Aglaia Konrad Undecided frames, Hong-Kong colors photography, 41 x 54 cm. Every photographer knows the drill. When taking a photograph, the first decisions that have to be made concern aiming and framing. To aim is to choose a vantage point and to decide on an orientation: high, low, left, right, frontal, oblique.
Aiming is about taking up a position in a three-dimensional world, settling on the angle from which to approach the world and calculating the distance to it. While aiming involves a relationship between a multisensorial body and the world, framing puts a camera between them. Suddenly, the world is no longer palpably there, but put at a distance, turned into an image to behold. As such, the act of framing comes down to deciding where the image starts, and where it ends. While determining the limits of the image, this frame is also responsible for the flattening of the world into a two-dimensional image; it organizes the visual field by putting the elements in the image in place and by articulating how they relate to each other.
Thus, framing is not only an act that plays out in space, but it also unfolds in time. To frame is to test different relations to the world, to commit oneself to the subject at hand. Framing is a dynamic process wherein photographer and world feel each other up. Still, no matter how precise the preparation of the photographer, the photographic procedure is a fickle one.

While taking the shot, something could always go awry: the camera jams, an image is over- or underexposed, unforeseen elements throw the carefully balanced image into disarray, etc. In photography, the moment where the image comes into being-when the shutter opens, the light enters through the lens and burns itself chemically onto the light sensitive material-is also the moment when the photographer is absent.
All preceding choices and decisions inevitably end in that one, brief instance when science the optical and chemical systems of the photographic apparatus takes over. Even if this moment generally goes unnoticed, it does reassert itself afterwards. At this moment of selection, the photographer is no longer the person who takes the shot, but the one who chooses between rows of produced images.
While these works address the built environment, they first and foremost explore some quirkier features of the photographic procedure.
Étiquette : Aglaia Konrad
Remarkably enough, however, they do this by exploiting those moments when the photographic system appears to fail. As if the specificity of photography can only be glanced at when the medium stutters and stumbles. Aglaia Konrad Zweimal belichtet, exhibition view. These mishaps were not programmed but the result of a specific working method that accompanies the analogue process.
As Konrad photographs the same subjects in black and white and in colour, and hence constantly recharges her camera with different film rolls, a mix-up may occur in which she re-uses an already exposed film roll. Only after development she noticed the mistake: two shots taken at different moments and showing different subjects are mashed together in a layered and fractured image. The film rolls that unfurl before the viewer show a continuous flow of extremely hard to read images.
As different spaces and times crash into one another, with their lines, colours and forms awkwardly fused, the world is no longer recognizable but becomes a hotchpotch of fragments. The double exposures are not superimposed in a discernable hierarchy, but coalesce into an intangible mess. Confronted with this clutter, the viewer starts to loose his bearings: his eye is unable to rest on one of the double takes, zooming in and out like an auto-focus camera. Indeed, the viewing experience is tantamount to what occurs while the photographer looks through his viewfinder: both observer and photographer seem immersed in that moment when the image is out of focus, when everything that meets the eye is in the process of becoming.
But, while the ordeal of the photographer usually ends successfully, the viewer is not so lucky here: he remains stuck in this moment where everything still wavers between presence and absence Although these images originated as failures, they are consciously recuperated as intriguing examples of an intrinsic part of the analogical photographic process. Their unreadability effectively overturns normative conceptions of the photographic image and its composition, but it also explores those unforeseen visual possibilities contained within the photographic medium.
Indeed, these bewildering images are testimonial to the crucial role that chance plays in the photographic act. It is in the slipstream of this automatic process that chance asserts its potentially damaging role. As such, they remind us of the dangerous and therefore titillating novelty the photographic act introduced in the visual culture of the 19th century, when, with the advent of the camera, anything could be depicted-whenever, whatever, wherever: such was the image-making credo introduced by the camera.
When contingency takes the overhand and chance dominates the production of the image, the coherence the photographer is supposed to bring to the image collapses. This work consists of pairs of photographs that are juxtaposed in a frame, with only a broad white border separating them. Although the photographs look similar at first, they display competing versions of one and the same image, the barely noticeable differences between them the results of a camera that has moved ever so slightly.
