08: Ana Vaz & Sasha Litvintseva
A dialogue between new audiovisual works, older or rediscovered films and videos by artists and filmmakers who work in the expanded field of moving image practice.
Ana Vaz & Sasha Litvintseva
This programma proposes a dialogue between the work of Brazilian artist Ana Vaz and Russian-born, London-based Sasha Litvintseva. Of the same generation – both were born in the late 1980s, at the end of History according to Francis Fukuyama – their distinct practices share a number of ongoing concerns and subjects. Time, memory and temporality are key concepts for both artists and their work speculatively excavates the layers of history, past and future, embedded in landscapes and architecture. Whilst Litvintseva is currently occupied with developing a new visuality for the Anthropocene, Vaz questions the relationship between language and cinema through the traces of utopian projects and colonial histories.
