Taking its cue from the Curtain Theatre the exhibition CURTAIN CLOSE at FILET in London establishes links to the early history of photography, in which sunlight was recorded as having left a photographic imprint on a curtain by destroying the coloured pigments in those areas of the cloth exposed to direct light. The white curtain at FILET is treated with photochromic blue which is responsive to daylight, a blacklight leaving temporary imprints on this photographic object. The exhibition brings the pre-history of photography up to date. It reflects on the idea of a store shop front, a gallery, a theatre.
