Kazan center for contemporary culture «Smena» presents an exhibit of the Swiss duo Francoise and Daniel Cartier. The works of F&D Carrier are experimental and fluid site-specific photo installations. Cartiers work with photosensitive materials and light.
The exposition is timed with the festival of arts and regional studies «Iskra» and highlights the results of a three-week long research at the Kazan factory of photographic materials «Tasma», which has recently stopped the production of its famous photo film. While in Kazan, the artists plan series of interviews with the employees, photographers, and researchers to learn more about the history of the factory, and as the duo puts it «to explore the peculiarities of this obsolete environment and to analyze its potential and limits».
