Overview

Slow pan shots, endless loops, a somnambulistic slipstream of images and puzzling plot lines--Teresa Hubbard, born in 1965 in Dublin, and Alexander Birchler, born in 1962 in Baden, Switzerland, credit Eadweard Muybridge's early motion pictures and the silent films of Thomas Edison and the Lumière Brothers as important influences on the deliberately slow cinematography of their fascinating and elaborately produced videos. No Room to Answer examines the artist couple's interest in the early history of photography and film, demonstrating how their picturesque, brilliantly colored images craft stories without a beginning or an end in vague, repetitious loops in which calm and movement, reality and dream, are precisely balanced. Starting with Hubbard and Birchler's early staged photographs, this monograph presents all of the artists' key works from 1991 to the present and includes three essays as well as a comprehensive interview with the artists.
