JEFF WEBER | UNTITLED (SUZANNE LAFONT)
FREIGEISTER11 NOVEMBER 2021 - 27 FEBRUARY 2022 | MUDAM LUXEMBOURG


Jeff  Weber's 35mm film Untitled (Suzanne Lafont) 2021 is a portrait of french artist Suzanne Lafont, known for her work on the relation of photography and language.

Weber shot the film during the installation of Lafont's exhibition How Things Think at Erna Hecey Gallery, between 20 and 22 April 2021. By exploiting the reflections on the surface of the works, the film redoubles the theatricality of Suzanne Lafont’s photographs and their ability to create different meanings. It echoes the history of cinema: the photographs used as a "projection surface" refer to Charlie Chaplin’s film A Day of Pleasure, released in 1919. For Jeff Weber, it is about reversing the relationship between photography and cinema and cross the temporality of these different mediums.

Jeff Weber, Untitled (Suzanne Lafont), 2021 is still on view until 27 February 2022 in the exhibition FreigeisterPAST
