Artist talk and screening
Wednesday, 21 November 2018, 7pm
Photon Gallery, Trg Prekomorskih brigad 1, Ljubljana
DIVA Station continues to co-organise Video Evening events with Photon Gallery. At the November event the artist Valerie Wolf Gang will present her recent art works in which she intertwines video, intermedia and film.
She will talk about her approaches towards the video medium and how she is including video in different contexts. In her presentation we will hear about constructing spaces where the video becomes part of new digital environments, about her passion for creating digital live images (VJ), and about her interactive projects within new media practices. Film is also an important part of her work. Through the experimental film form she seeks new ways of expressing and telling stories. And last but not least, she will talk about what is it like to live and work as a free-lance cultural producer with several professions: video artist, intermedia artist, a film director and a teacher.
The event will be moderated by Vesna Bukovec, a member of DIVA Station team.
