|Triple exposición (2012)|
From found footage to lyrical film
Microscope Gallery: 12th october 2013. 7pm.
Microscope is very pleased to welcome Spanish filmmaker Albert Alcoz to the gallery for the first time in person for a solo screening of his new and recent film works including manipulated found footage works and original Super 8mm. Alcoz’s appropriations – a B-movie Sci-Fi feature, home movies, a series of soda ads, and a classic World War II documentary – have been transformed in format and material, with several involving chemical dissolutions to distort the original photographic textures. The artist’s original Super 8 films (all shot in camera, some in color and others in b&w) offer silent impressions and accelerations of the cities and natural environments around him. Alcoz previously curated a program of Spanish filmmakers during our first season and his own films have been shown in several Microscope screening programs..
