under the microscope

will be screened this Sunday May 22 at Festival International Musique Actuelle Victoriaville. Thanks for the invite Karl Lemieux! more info: https://www.fimav.qc.ca/fr/edition/cinema PROGRAMME 2: ELECTRIC SHADOWS, SUNDAY MAY 22, CARRÉ 150, 11 AM – $15 This program brings together experimental films from Quebec, the Netherlands, and Austria. Pushed to the limits of abstraction, these works travel between the shadows of 35 mm film and the electric matter of video, while also foregrounding the important dialogue between experimental film and music. The program opens with two found footage-based films: « Rhythm In The Backstroke » by STEVEN WOLOSHEN and ALEXANDRA GRIMANIS, which features the music of Fred Frith; and « under the microscope » from MICHAELA GRILL, in collaboration with musician Sophie Trudeau (GY!BE). After the works of two Quebec video artists: JULIE TREMBLE’s « Explosion no 3 »; and SABRINA RATTÉ’s « House of Skin », realized collaboratively with musician Roger Tellier-Craig during a residency at the Cinémathèque québécoise; we enter into the singular world of JOOST REKVELD, who makes films using complex networks of analogue computers. The program closes with « Train Again », the latest opus from the grand master of analogue filmmaking, PETER TSCHERKASSKY.


Sophie and I will be performing live as part of the Inside the Frame exhibition at Verksmiðjan in Hyalteyri, Iceland on Friday May, 13th at 8pm. Free Entry!

Guðmundur Arnalds, Brynjar Daðason + Hafdís Bjarnadóttir are also playing the same evening.

Inside the Frame

I am very exited to announce that my first retrospective solo exhibition Inside the Frame will open May 7th at 2pm at Verksmiðjan in Hyalteyri, Iceland. Besides my lifelong engagement with nature and its representation, the exhibition includes for the first time the entire found footage cycle that Sophie Trudeau and I have created over the last 2 years including one installation, three single channel works and one live performance. The live-performance glimmer will be on May 13th at 8pm and we share the evening with Hafdís Bjarnadóttir & Brynjar Daðason, Guðmundur Ari Arnalds. The performance will be repeated on May 15 at Mengi in Reykjavík. My deepest gratitude to Gústav Geir Bollason!
