Cinéma is the publication to an earlier work, a film with the same name, Marte Aas directed in 2010. „Cinéma escorts you through the history of film, passing the chronophotography of Edward Muybridge, the Lumière-brothers’ The Serpentine Dance (1898) and Richard Serra’s Hand Catching Lead (1968). Cinéma informs you of how modern man treats movement. It shows how the gaze of the film has become our own, how we have internalized its double approach — from behind and in front of the camera lens — and unconsciously made it ours. At the same time, Cinéma disturbs the acquired obviousness in our way of seeing. It is undoubtedly a performance on film.“ — Marit Paasche
