Autoritratto, 2020, 8mm to digital, single channel, colour, 4 min.

Synopsis

A short piece commissioned by Antimatter Media Art, a "portrait of the artist by the artist", first exhibited as part of Automat compilation. It consists of recycled 8mm footage of Canadian landscapes, mixed materials, ink and film cement. 

As an immigrant, looking for, and collecting, past images of Canada is a way of imagining a past that I don’t have in this country. The re-writing of the self is produced through the archive of others via associative montage.
