In two separate rooms at the Dutch Centre in London, Verhallen presented his series I, the Photograph and il faut que je sois. Photographs of the former were printed at life-like size and mounted on dibond, placed at eye-level for a direct contact with the viewer. Headphones in front of the images played a loop of the particular song that the person in the photograph was listening to at the moment of capturing the image. The eleven hand-made prints from negative of the il faut que je sois series are hung in sequence in the old library room, with a brief text explaining its narrative. The exhibition ran from October 2015 until January 2016.
I, the Photograph: Fine-art prints mounted on dibond; Sennheiser headphones connected to MP3-players; text mounted on foam-core boards.
il faut que je sois: Handmade prints from medium format negative on silver-gelatin RC paper, mounted in frames of various sizes.
