Serial Grey is the publication for Jeff Weber's exhibition at Carré d'Art, Nîmes. The four chapters of the book correspond to the four galleries of the exhibition. It starts with the Neural Networks, a series of large format grid-like photograms that establish an enigmatic dialogue with his photographic and archival practice. As counterpart to these photograms, the other end of the exhibition consists of black and white 35mm films. Some monochromatic animation films are projected together with short real life sequences. The publication traces the conflicting forces of photography and film within his work, up to the point that, at the end, we rediscover the principles that constituted the abstract photograms at the beginning, transposed into the linearity of the medium of film.
The book was published at the occasion of the exhibition Jeff Weber, Serial Grey at Carré d'Art, Musée d'art contemporain de Nîmes (June 15 - November 14 2021).
