Walden in collaboration with the Finnish Institute in Sweden welcomes Finnish filmmaker Sami van Ingen. Van Ingen mostly works with film, video and installations. Whether it is in the form of large, spatial arrangements for two modified – or pimped as he himself expressed it – 35mm-projectors or films projected in 35mm CinemaScope, or smaller formats like Super-8, 8mm or 16 mm, his activities is characterized by an intense, exploratory and yet playful work with the hands. In van Ingen's now extensive work catalogue and in the role of teacher and author of the book Moving Shadows: Experimental Film practices in a landscape of Change (2012), one can read a preoccupation of several of experimental film's central occupations and concerns: an interest in the film strip or the photogram as a single cell for exploration, the use of found footage, alternative ways to make use of the film and the camera as apparatus, as well as an interest in the procedural and the projection as singular event.
