David Kilian Beck

Off Frame

Portrait photographs of long departed members of one's family confront the viewer with the unknown and the passing of time. Due to the lack of testimony from the sitter's side the viewer's only possibility is imagining the off-frame space. In combination with the stories we have been told and the collective memory of a family, we hallucinate and reconstruct the person and the moment in which the picture was captured. In this project the artist follows three narratives of deaths in his family and puts contemporary tableaux in contrast with personal super8 footage and photographic material. Printed on silk, it illustrates the fleetingness and transparency of our perception and memory.
