C7497 is the identification number of a Fuji Provia film used by Lucas Leglise during a trip in Siberia. It is here printed in its totality and at its actual size. The metal mechanism of the camera in which the film was got frozen by the cold, overexposing nine photographs taken outside – next to Lake Baikal, near Irkutsk – but normally showing the only image taken inside the Trans-Siberian train where the camera was protected by the surrounding heat. The cold, slowing down the shutter’s motion, was a gateway for the world to imprint itself on the photograph differently than with representation. “If the train allows us to gaze at the landscape going by around us, are we limited to look at the film of the world individually, or is it possible to inhabit a journey?” questions the artist.
