Projekt Mutacije II preizprašuje pricipe rabe videa s preučevanjem produktivnih odnosov, ki so se razvili med zamrznjenimi in gibljivimi slikami in ki dajo slutiti, kje je danes mesto sodobne umetnosti v Evropi. Z opustitvijo statusa medija, ki zamrzne posneto resničnost, in z izposojo ene od osnovnih lastnosti video umetnosti – t. j. časovne dimenzije – postaja fotografija z najrazličnejšimi umetniškimi manipulacijami in tehničnimi hibridizacijami, tako analognimi kot digitalnimi, emancipirana.

Ustvarjalci razstave Mutacije II so se odločili predstaviti evropske umetnike, ki jih posebej privlači eksperimentiranje z novimi izraznimi oblikami. Tako kot Nancy Spector v svojem eseju Art Photography after Photography [Umetnost fotografije po fotografiji] so učinkovito preizprašali posebne kriterije, ki so nekoč omogočali začrtanje ločevanja med fotografom in umetnikom, ki dela s fotografijo. Vse več fotografov uporablja video, to pa spreminja posebne kriterije, ki opredeljujejo obe področji. Poleg raznolikih estetskih izhodišč in vizualnih tehnik, ki jih uporabljajo, nas umetniki, predstavljeni na razstavi Mutacije II, spodbujajo, da prestopimo teritorialne omejitve in akademske opredelitve, ki praviloma zamejujejo umetniška področja, in da raziščemo meje, ki jih ločujejo. Z drugimi besedami, razstava Mutacije II nas vabi k odkrivanju novih teritorijev in preučevanju tako fiksnih kot gibljivih slik skozi napetosti, ki jih motivirajo. Te vključujejo tudi ontološko napetost, ki izvira iz hibridizacije tradicionalne fotografske in gibljive podobe, in dialektično napetost med omejenimi možnostmi prikaza, ki so na voljo fotografijam, ter «neskončnimi percepcijskimi kombinacijami, v okviru katerih je mogoče opredeliti in artikulirati elektronske podobe» (Les nuouvelle images, 2001), še posebej video instalacije.

Mutations II aims to question the principles of video by exploring the productive relationships that have developed between fixed and moving images and providing a sense of where contemporary art stands in Europe today. By abandoning its status as a medium for freezing recorded reality and by borrowing one of its essential features, namely the temporal dimension, from video art, photography is becoming emancipated via all kinds of artistic manipulations and technical hybridizations, both analogue and digital.

The people behind Mutations II have thus chosen to showcase European artists who have in common a taste for experimenting with new forms of expression. Like Nancy Spector in her essay Art Photography after Photography, they have effectively questioned the specific criteria that used to make it possible to draw a distinction between a photographer and an artist working with photography. A growing number of photographers are using video, and this is changing the specific criteria that define both crafts. Apart from the diversity of their aesthetic standpoints and of the visual techniques they use, the artists presented in Mutations II encourage us to step beyond the territorial considerations and academic definitions which tend to ring-fence artistic fields, and to explore the boundaries that separate them. In other words Mutations II invites us to discover new territory, investigating both fixed and moving images via the tensions that motivate them. These include an ontological tension between that which is momentary and that which takes place over time, an aesthetic tension arising from the hybridization of the traditional photographic image and the moving image, and a dialectical tension between the limited display possibilities open to photographs and “the infinity of perceptional combinations within which electronic images can be defined and articulated” (Les nuouvelle images, 2001), particularly video installation.
