24th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
After spending two years studying and collecting images created using various wet development processes for 16mm film, Wang explores the visual forms of material fluidity in order to celebrate invisible micro- and macrostructures whose chimeras are laid bare in moving patterns.
"I am often inspired by the beauty of errors produced in analogue film production and use unwanted analogue visual noise and patterns, such as dust or watermarks to create imaginary cinematic landscapes." N. Wang
Dutch experimental filmmaker Nan Wang (1968) focuses on the fascinating microcosm of beetles, cells, and dust as juxtaposed with conceited human largeness. Working with a macro lens, she pulls back the miniature curtain on the invisible world all around us and explores its relationship to man, nature, and art. Wang today lectures at the Academy of Fine Arts in China.
