NOKTURNO

Nokturno is a dark poetic body of work that hints at mysterious objects and landscapes which delightfully challenges the reader.
— Douglas Stockdale / photobookjournal.com
 

Nokturno is the first published photobook by Slovenian artist Andrej Lamut in which he approaches photography as a sequence of performances. The series is a result of his research on all performative acts that construct the final artwork as a physical object. Although at the first glance the photographs may seem documentary due to their candid appearance and overall feel, they are not – they are the complete opposite of straight photography. What generates meaning in these images are the physical performative actions made by the artist, that have an impact on visual and physical appearance of the artwork. The essence of performative photography is not what is depicted on an image, but which acts were executed in the process of creating it. Through them the final artwork itself becomes performative by leaving its impact on the viewer.

 
The blacks are deep and thick; we try to find our way in the night, as the title suggests, and we spend time with each image, we go back to them, thinking that we may have forgotten something. And by dint of scrutinizing these images, one wonders what inhabits the photographer, what are these strange scenes drawn by light.
