W.G. Sebald: Lines of Sight

The exhibition Lines of Sight showing works by the writer W.G. Sebald, including his photography, is open at the Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery (UK) until January 2020. I knew Prof Sebald a little, and if you get a chance to visit, the exhibition is worthwhile. The photos are not extraordinary, but the exhibition shows how the photos were worked into text in a way that is really extraordinary.

Unfortunately the exhibition Far Away but from Where finished yesterday.

Sebald is one of my favorite writers at this time of my reader's life. Discovering Saturn rings (french version) was a true disclosure. I continue to explore this author.

A few month ago I had a meeting/workshop with a well known photographer who suggested me before to complete a body of work I'am working on to read "Austerlitz" by Sebald.

It was great discovery of an author who used not only words but photo as well in his books.

Not easy sometimes but for sure worthwhile the effort.

At Adam Scovell's Celluloid Wicker Man is a redacted text of the lecture he gave at Norwich Castle on August 27, 2019 in conjunction with the exhibition "Lines of Sight: W.G. Sebald’s East Anglia" I mentioned above. Scovell briefly describes the talk:

I’m going to talk about Sebald from three angles, all related to cinema. The first is to look at cinema as an influence on Sebald’s writing, his relationship to cinema and even his own shadow-career as a would-be screenwriter. Moving on from this, the second section will look at Sebald’s influence on cinema as a subject after his death, looking in particular at documentaries about the writer and how making cinema with his work as a subject affected the way in which filmmakers approached the medium. And, finally, with this somewhat symbiotic relationship defined, we’ll conclude by looking at the potential of a Sebaldian cinema in itself; a cinema influenced by his atmospheres and methodologies but which uses them to create new work.

Scovell has written other pieces about Sebald, all worth looking at. And keeping an eye on Celluloid Wicker Man is well worthwhile if you like cinema, film stills and interesting analysis.
