By means of films, texts, sounds, photographs, paintings and other materials, The Otolith Group explores the nature of perception and analyses the role played by documents and images in the creation of archives in the post-colonial world. Theirs is a science fiction of the present, which recovers forgotten moments from history and projects them into the future. Sagar and Eshun’s work is best approached by putting aside the traditional methodological boundaries between creators, critics and curators. They create, analyse, interpret and reinterpret reality in an obsessive attempt to transcend the opacity of their images. To do so, they turn to the full range of semantic possibilities of montage and invite viewers to become editors of their works.
