Published in 1980, Camera Lucida is undeniably one of the most relevant books about the photographic medium. This exhibition with the same title will showcase a series of artworks arranged in a specific temporal order. It is through this choreographed succession of works and their consequently impermanence on site that Roland Barthes' book will be visually and poetically revisited. Shaped in the form of an audiovisual essayistic exhibition, the show "Camera Lucida" aims to function as a new way of reading Barthes’ text, a reading that could be described as deconstructed, fractured, or distracted, similarly addressing our contemporary modes of apprehending visual and textual information.
