Now Showing: Florence Lazar 12th August - 1st September 2009 tank.tv is pleased to present a selection of work by Florence Lazar.
Since the late 1990’s, Florence Lazar has been making films about the situation in Former-Yugoslavia.
The events in the region have led her to explore questions of identity and politics in a post-conflict situation. Mostly motionless, her camera stresses the presence of the artist which is characterised by her absence of verbal or physical intervention. Similar to that of a mute interlocuter, Lazar’s position creates a space that belongs to the people she films, a space that is shaped by their testimonies on war, politics and identity.
Florence Lazar was born in 1966 and studied at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Paris where she lives and works. She has exhibited widely internationally and in 2007 her work was included in Vide´o et apre`s, Centre Pompidou, Paris
