Gunvor Nelson's work has been exhibited at, among other places, the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, the MoMA in New York and in cinemateques worldwide. Now Filmform presents a selection of her films available on Blu-ray. Nelson, who over the years has created some thirty films and video works between 1953 and 1993, primarily in California but lives and works in his native town Kristinehamn.
From the catalogue:
"Gunvor Nelson has always dug where she stood. Attentive, responsive, determined, curious and with a great sense of humor. The films have followed her as a person and she films, over the years, in an ever-growing frustration over the film material fragility and transience. Celluloid films are anything but a mass-producible and automatically copyable medium. Thus, and because of the increased demand for her work, this Blu-ray edition is most welcome." - John Sundholm
