Danziger Gallery presents a series of 20 dye transfer prints by Irish artist Jean Curran – a work of editing and re-presentation that takes key scenes from Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo to reveal the cinematographic artistry of the film in a fresh and novel way.
Produced with the full co-operation of the Hitchcock estate, Curran first edited select frames from a rare original Technicolor dye imbibition print of Vertigo from 1958, and then printed them using the same dye transfer process by which the movie was made.  Editing 20 still images from the hundreds of thousands of frames that make up the film, Curran switches from moving pictures to still prints to create a medium-jumping work in its own right.
