Curators: Bruno Vandermeulen, Danny Veys
The exhibition is a collection of the photographical impressions of Vandermeulen and Veys while working at the excavation of Sagalassos, included in the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List 2009. The project that began in 2003 by the two photographers, who provided documentation for archaeological research, brings a new perspective to site-specific photography.
Images of history captured by using various photographical techniques
Inspired by the deeply rooted relationship between photography and archaeology, and their common history, the exhibition “(In) Site Sagalassos” includes images of the spectacular structures. As well as the exceptional findings, the photos reflect the excavation process, the landscape, structures, and the relationships among people. Translating the archaeological vision into a more contemporary language, Vandermeulen and Veys explore the link between the surrounding area and the site in photography.
