Louise Crawford and Stéphan Guéneau are a franco-british duo, living in Paris and Berlin. Their practice examines how personal and collective history and memory is represented by shifting between the realities they observe (using film, photography and other media) and the archival material they appropriate. This sampling and staging of the past to decode the present exposes at times the hidden processes of production, creating a visual database; factual, fragmentary and non-exhaustive.
A selection of their shows include: Shutter Hub, ARB Cambridge University, Cambridge; La Nuit Blanche, Paris; Monat der Fotografie Off, Berlin; Plateforms Project Independent Art Fair, Athens; Glasgow International Biennale, Glasgow; VVV Galerie, Buenos Aires.
Their films are internationally distributed by LIGHT CONE, Paris.
KAMERA CAHIERS are special edition issues, accompanying KAMERA SERIES | experimental films and printed matter.
Independent artists' booklets to collect, curated and designed by Giuliana Prucca and Valentina Besegher Scotti, they compile a missing image or an unreleased second of a film, expanded to 24 pages, and perfomed writings coming from texts, scripts, books, notes. They contain a small piece directly removed from the exhibition.
Published in 75 numbered copies by AVARIE and Labor Neunzehn, cahiers' covers are printed in letterpress by Archivio Tipografico with lead typeface Magister designed by Aldo Novarese in 1966.
