When does an idea manifest itself, and when does the moment of creation find us? Working mainly in the medium of film, Manon de Boer (b. 1966, the Netherlands) produces work that discuss cinematic elements such as image, audio and the perception of time. The relationship between sound and image, the inevitable transience of time, and the framing of each shot are some aspects that are central to her experimental films. The artist also integrates the creative process of actors, musicians and dancers, and the ways they deliver their thoughts and emotions through bodily movements. Through careful observation, de Boer captures moments in time in which something takes place like a silhouette slowly revealing itself on photographic paper.
