Exploded View presents an inner journey through a Kodak Carousel slide projector. Traveling millimeter by millimeter, the images show a cyclical movement in the interior of the projector through lenses, wires and other technical parts. The technical self-exploration of the piece can almost work on a bodily and spiritual level, where the formal transformation of techniques and material also gives room for a poetical reading.

Engaging issues of self-reflexivity, illusionism, narrative and cinema, the work of Alexander Gutke is marked by a mystical materialism. Through analytically investigating the composition of devices such as cameras and slide projectors, he valorizes their unseen mechanisms as fertile spaces for the imagination.
