Part of MOSTYN’s ongoing ‘Conversation Series’ the exhibition centres on the company Kodak, a primary point of exposure in Bizumic’s work, and pictures the transition from film-based photography to digital imaging.

Through photography and sculpture the work traces a timeline of Kodak’s development, from its founding in 1880 to its subsequent demise in 2012 when the company filed for bankruptcy. The history of photography and of technology’s progression and obsolescence, alongside a chronological parallel of corporate hubris, is captured by Bizumic. These issues act as a lens through which to consider much larger concepts – how the capturing of images, and the technology that enables this, influences not only aesthetic, social and economic relations, but also the resulting effects when they are replaced and taken out of the picture.
