An exhibition of video footage taken on mobile phones by Syrian civilians during the ongoing recent revolution. In a kind of ‘double shooting’, civilians fire at army snipers with their phone cameras in an attempt to bear witness and hold the snipers to account by posting them on the web.
Mroué has culled these from You Tube, then zooms in to scrutinise sniper’s features, only to see them pixelate into abstraction the closer he searches for their identity. Mroué plays out the role of selector, interpreter and commentator. Alongside film footage and pixelated images of snipers, we show Mroué’s fascinating lecture that attempts to further understand these double shootings.
