Scene missing, photomontage by Mark Rappaport

    After making shorts and feature films since the 1970's such as The Scenic Route (1978) and From the Journals of Jean Seberg (1992), nowadays Rappaport devotes himself also to creating photomontages, some of which will be presented at The Film Gallery for six weeks.

Stage fright with top hats, by Mark Rappaport

    Mark Rappaport's photomontages tell much about his interests and his love for cinema. They are collages made out of his favorite movies and stars but not just that. This work has been shown in New York, Las Palmas (Spain), Nantes and Rotterdam. This is a unique opportunity for Parisians to learn about the lesser known artwork by this versatile American filmmaker. Besides his work in visual arts, Rappaport also writes about cinema and has published a number of articles in French magazines such as Trafic. Some of these are assembled in the book The Moviegoer who Knew too Much (Le Spectateur qui en savait trop, 2008, Pol Editeur) which will be available at the exhibition.
