Madi Piller, a peruvian artist who lives in Canada, has been “hands-on” for two decades, working directly and intimately with the film, and exploiting all its qualities through different ways. She has shaped a multitude of works with direct action on the film strip (from films to performances): a practice that will be disseminated through this workshop that will invite to generate a collective piece as if it was a film performance.
In this workshop, we will manipulate used footage (in 35mm and 16mm), found or expired, which will be transformed with chemical and organic materials, painting, cutting, or ripping. The workshop also includes a special part dedicated to sound, in which we will use the optical sound of 16mm projectors: every image contains a sound, which will also be manipulated in different ways.
With the resulting works in 16mm, and with the digitalisations of the manipulated 35mm, a collective performance will be built. This performance will be shown on Sunday, June 2 at 7:00 pm in the Sala (S8) PALEXCO.
