Bruce Conner

Bruce Conner Work from Mea Culpa. “Bruce Conner, legendary avant-garde films are well known for their pioneering use of found footage: mixing old newsreels, training, educational, and science films, cartoons, 16-mm condensed versions of Hollywood westerns and other kinds of B movies that were sold for home entertainment, he transformed and rearranged these images, pixelating some, […]

Amie Siegel

Amie Siegel Work from Black Moon. “The centerpiece of this three-part work is “Black Moon,” a partial remaking of Louis Malle’s 1975 film of the same title. A present-day science-fiction without dialogue, Siegel’s “Black Moon” traverses multiple film tropes – action, guns, lonely campfires, the end of the world – and, like its band of […]

Thomas Bayrle

Thomas Bayrle Work from his oeuvre. “There is an obsessive and darkly visionary quality about much of Bayrle’s work but, crucially, there is also plenty of wry humour and pleasure in the absurd and the idiotic.

Liz Wendelbo

Liz Wendelbo Work from (primarily) Optiks. “Her filmmaking predicates resistance to cinema as a virtual medium – this resistance in film is what she refers to as Cold Cinema.

Eric White

Stripped of any indication that we are viewing traditional color or black-and-white photographic images, we are instead left to read visual elements whose variables might […]

Regina de Miguel

Regina de Miguel Work from Report (Informe). “These images propose a series of scenarios regarding symbolic constructions not purely illustrative but subject to an interpretation, in terms of its futuristic and theatrical nature allusive of a type of cinematographic and literary science fiction (La Jetée, THX 1138, Solaris, Alphaville…). Focused on an estrangement before the […]
