Evidence by For almost twenty years, Dutch film artists Jan Dietvorst and Roy villevoye have been exploring issues as diverse as anthropological representation, the conventions of documentary filmmaking, and culture as a means of adaptation and re-enactment. Published on the occasion of EVIDENCE, their first major solo exhibition at Argos Centre for Art & Media (Brussels, 2017), the associate catalog presents a comprehensive look into their work through two ongoing themes: the memory of World War I and the encounter with the Asmat people in the Papua province of Indonesia. The catalog includes more than one hundred film stills and installation shots from the exhibition, creating a doorway into experiencing the work. Art historian and exhibition curator Andrea Cinel presents the nonnarrative and nonlinear way their work makes connections and creates meaning, while filmmaker An van Dienderen places their work outside the traditional documentary genre that she considers characterized by a predictable claim to reality and a fixed relationship of authority between filmmaker and subject.
