Laida Lertxundi (Bilbao, 1981)
"I work with 16mm motion picture film, photography and printmaking in a process I call Landscape Plus, documenting California landscapes while bringing equal attention to sound, people and the passage of time. My work moves between intimate interior architectures and the magnitude of open landscapes to map out a geography transformed by affective and subjective states. I employ a fragmentary approach to editing in which cinematic forms of storytelling are replaced by a focus on process and materiality. I'm interested in the tension between form and the experience that will always exceed it. I present the environment from an embodied female position with a radical appreciation for everything that we have to lose."
Screening and artist talk will take place at 7:00pm in the Full Frame Theater at American Tobacco Campus in Durham. Free and open to the public.
