Melvin Moti, Eigenlicht (The inner self in outer space), 2012

Artists' Film Club: Melvin Moti + Q&A

1 Nov 2014

Dutch artist Melvin Moti takes particular historical moments, anecdotes or scientific events and explores them in intense detail. His films and installations often reduce his chosen subject matter to the point that their visual and aural attributes become unique from their original state and independent of their original contexts.

This screening features a two-part presentation of his 35mm moving image work, and includes a discussion and Q&A with the artist.
