HER FOOTSTEPS ARE ALSO AN IMAGE
The artistic practice of Alex Reynolds is characterized by a constant obsession with experimentation with film codes. Her work explores the invasive and expansive potential of the point of view, empathy or rhythm, as well as the composition of power structures around fiction. For this encounter at the EACC, two members of the project Cine por venir (Sonia Martínez and Miguel Ángel Baixauli) will discuss with the artist on the basis of her film Ver nieve (2016) exhibited within the framework of the exhibition Te toca a ti. Its nomadic forum for the exchange of processes related to contemporary image explores the relationships with other artistic and social practices. What is cinema today, how to do it, and for whom is the thematic link of all her activities. On this occasion, Ver nieve will allow us to explore these and other issues from a film whose main character claims to embody cinema. Her steps are also an image.
