FILMIC SPACE

Framing used as a filmic tool is often a cut-out from the existing space. When using this idea of framing as a scenographic tool, something else starts to appear. The filmic frame freezes time in a way the scenographic frame cannot do. It preserves a chosen time. The scenographic way on the other hand, develops in time. To be bodily present in a framed space, slowly revealing themselves to you, is a strength the filmic frame cannot. So, when combining these two, scenograph(film)ic framing both develops and conserves time. And by doing so, a pictorial sense of space appears; an illusion between two-dimensionally and three-dimensionally; a play of the seen and not seen; a curiosity to the ‘left out’

Zoey Benschop

Why should everything already be visible all at once

and not

piece
by
piece?

The work has been a search to the importance of focus; focus on a certain point in order to understand the empty space around. Always eager to find the tension between the smaller fragments in the bigger whole, slowly revealing themselves to you, Zoey aims to create an embodied filmic experience. By using this filmic way of looking at a space, she developed a very specific setting for the spectator to create a curious eye: evoke a wondering about the existing environment from a different and framed perspective.
