With more than twenty works of a dual nature –publication and film–, Legible – Visible. Between the Film Frame and the Page illustrates the interest of creators in interweaving and linking the printed page and the audio-visual document, overlapping them to the extent that they become almost fused into a single surface for creation. What happens when an artist "translates" certain content from a printed medium to an audio-visual format, or vice versa? What is changed, what is altered and what remains when this transposition of formats takes place? How do they complement or counterpose one another? This exhibition invites reflection on issues such as sequentiality, narrative, cinema, the passage of time, montage, representations of movement and, ultimately, the relationship between publications and audio-visual material, two of the most important media upon which the cultural and social landscape of our times is built.
