Competing at Oberhausen


Multiple exposures of street scenes in Hong Kong and Taiwan, fracturing the milieu and revealing the spatial transmutation of two states existing somewhere between China and not China.

Our take

Continuing our spotlight on some of the best of Oberhausen’s short competition is a vivid new film by Richard Tuohy and Dianna Barrie. Exemplary advocates for the power of celluloid, this sensorial work overlaps layer upon layer of film not only for textural delight but also geo-political evocation.
