A new film by Martha Colburn will be shown in the gallery on September 12. She will also vj at the show of Al Lover.
Martha Colburn is best known as a filmmaker, animator and multimedia artist. Colburn worked together with many different artists and musicians, including Deerhoof. The theme throughout her work are social issues; these are diverse and often political. We find subjects of death, violence, consumerism and sexuality in her animated films. She uses any type of material for her collages, for instance pieces of paper, paints them with such inspiration, improvisation and imagination and finally makes them move in her film. This way she creates an overwhelming and fascinated combination of painting and film.
