Still by Michele Aboud

About the project

In Still, in Aboud's latest work, she taps into the Bressonian ideal of the decisive moment with a series of large-scale, black and white, side-by-side portraits of people and domestic animals at the moment of a simple blink. The diptych-style presentation, in which each portrait touches the other, creates a seam that draws focus to that decisive moment. The seam that eventuates is, in effect, that liminal space in which the decisive moment eternally rests. The subjects in Stills with their searing highlights and mannequin-like aura embody Aboud’s unique experiences of that ephemeral moment when the familiar becomes uncanny.
