In collaboration with la lumière collective, VISIONS presents, THE SPECTACLE OF HISTORY: short films by Sasha Litvintseva. Litvintseva is an artist, filmmaker, researcher and curator. She was born and raised in Russia and has been based in London since 2004. Her films excavate the layers of history, past and future, embedded in landscape and architecture, and juxtapose and entangle the monumental and the pictorial, narrative and infrastructure, the global and the personal, the human and the geologic, embodiment and temporality, politics and leisure, and ultimately the infinite and the everyday.
“Her hypnotic videos draw the viewer into a sense of narrative in which reality is skewed...
Out-of-place, yet seemingly everyday characters, move through a contemporary environment with a hint of menace.
Her twisted eye roams through a well-crafted filmic vocabulary.”
-Dazed's Artists we’re watching out for in 2015
