Event Description

“Shifting Gaze” is a film and video-art-music installation about CHOICE, DESIRE and MEMORY.

Conceived and directed by Laia Cabrera (filmmaker and video-artist) and created in collaboration with Erica Glyn (Music production, composer and singer) and Isabelle Duverger (Photography and Graphic Animations).

The project nature is based in creative collaboration between different disciplines. Shifting Gaze looks at our feeling of place and time in its most stripped down state: simply ‘being’. Hovering on the borders of consciousness, the film is an exploration of both event and human presence. The strongest principle of growth lies in human choice. Drawing on the fragments-presence of the body, urban construction, textures and remains of activity, this triptych pays homage to the submerged, the transformed, the no longer visible.

Shifting Gaze is born out of the impulse to get close to the human behind the persona. The piece challenges self-expression and invents new forms of desire, breathing life into the medium and navigating on a new notion of choice, linked to desire and memory, choice being the present, memory representing the past and desire, the drive for a future. What we want (desire) is linked or conflicting with what is expected from us (identity, memory), and choice is the act upon which we build ourselves. Underneath these mirrored imageries lie many stories about limits, freedom and self-perception: stories of the mind. A shifting gaze may allow us to interpret our interactions with others, from grasping cues to understanding other people’s behavior toward us. Shifting Gaze is ultimately a piece about identity, a film-installation about making choices, a memory in act.
