PrintRoom joins the 48th International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) with an exhibtion by Mika Taanila and a presentation of our extensive flipbook collection by artists, designers, filmmakers and photographers.
Finnish artist Mika Taanila will present the exhibition Works on Paper, consisting of two series: an ultra-minimalist reduction of a film script in My Silence (On Paper) (2015) and a small library of brutally, yet cleverly abused books on cinema: Film Reader (2017), as previously premiered at the Venice Biennale.
My Silence (On Paper) is a companion piece to Taanila’s 2013 video installation My Silence. Here the point of departure is the published script of the feature film My Dinner with André (dir. Louis Malle, 1981). The artist photocopied each page of the book, cut out all the dialogue content using small knives, then re-photocopied the residue on standard office paper. The piece is shown on a wall as a grid of 97 paper sheets.
In collaboration with Balzer Projects and part of the film programme Say No More
