Ugo Petronin (b1985, FR) is a visual artist and filmmaker based in Rotterdam. His current research leans on the notions of fluidity and continuity to question the sequential recording and the frame by frame ideology in photographic and cinematographic processes. His latest work Abiding (2019), a film made of a single 35mm strip-photograph taken in a shutter-less camera is the first outcome of that exploration.
