Evidentiary Dilemmas is a program of artists' films that document conversations, collect facts, and catalogue statements. While some of the films deal with the personal and the domestic, others explore historical moments and judicial proceedings, or they parody mundane incidents and the inconsistencies of hearsay. Together, these works are an assemblage of documentation and (para-)fiction. Initially, we could make the assertion that the factual nature of what we see—or perhaps don't see—will provide stability: the stability of knowing. But the greater the burden of the facts, the more difficult and unsettling it may become to find certainty. Unable to bear the discomfort of not knowing, one strategy may be to settle into disorientation as an honest state that comes with its own rewards.

Minou Norouzi is a moving image artist based in London. She co-organizes Sheffield Fringe, an artist-led curatorial project exploring the intersection of art & documentary practices, through screenings, talks, exhibitions, and research.
