A proposal by Esperanza Collado for the programme Cine de acción. Camina o reinventa.
Based on the sculptural possibilities of the film materiality, there are three correlated lines of work: direct manipulation that offers the physicality of film, the investigation of new models of presentation of film material and its resonance in space, and the articulation of the presence of the body in the cinematic experience. The piece lies between performance and installation, in which a set of ephemeral film pieces are combined with the staging of concrete actions that complement the projections, in 16mm. The group explores the phenomenon of light projection as a gas and volumetric formation, while the film is derailed and stitched.
About Esperanza Collado
Artist and researcher whose practice includes curating and independent programming, criticism and teaching. Author of Paracinema : The Dematerialization of the Film in the Artistic Practices (Trama Editorial , Madrid, 2012) , which explores the idea of cinema disconnected from its physical apparatus and the ability to express specific aspects of film in a variety of media, proposing an understanding of cinema as an adisciplinary practice. Her most recent work investigates the act of projection as performance itself, where the body, film, cut and frame act in conjunction with the magnetic intermittency of space and the ephemerality of light as sculpture of time. She is a co-founder of Experimental Film Club (Dublin), where she regularly programmes since 2008 and of Artistic Association LEVE, an interdisciplinary creative space located in a rural area of the province of León. Her work has been shown at the CCCB, Tate Modern ,National Gallery of Ireland ,Anthology Film Archives, Director's Launch Berlin ,Micromuseum , etc. .
