Artist Talk with Rebecca Moran
Still Life with Fries by Rebecca Moran
Rebecca Moran is LIFT's Spring 2016 Artist in Residence.
On Tuesday April 26 at 7:00pm at LIFT (1137 Dupont Street), Rebecca Moran will present an artist talk of her work and introduce her practice. She will discuss the small format film cooperative, Kinsomiðja, she started in 2009 in Reykjavík Iceland as a means to introduce 16mm programming and workshops to the local art scene—yet another point on the map of film micro-labs that have emerged around the world in the last decade.
Since Kinsomiðja is a member of the film-lab circuit, Moran has been able to travel and connect with like-minded organizations around the world. In addition, she is highly engaged in net-art processes and seeing her work in that context will build on the type of digital and analogue synthesis that is so important for LIFT at the moment—analogue recast via a contemporary punk aesthetic that resonates with the current media arts scene. Excerpts of her installation work will be on display.
Rebecca Moran is a visual artist based in Reykjavík, Iceland. She works in diverse forms such as installation and sculpture, which often examines concepts and techniques of 16mm filmmaking to explore perception, narrative and linear thinking; where time loses the marker of meaning. She is a member of Filmwerkplaats in Rotterdam and the founder of the film co-op Kinosmiðja in Iceland. www.rebeccaerinmoran.com
