Over the Bones and the Mirroring Cure
HIAP are delighted to show two recent films by British filmmaker Charlotte Ginsborg. The artist will be present to personally introduce her films.
Charlotte Ginsborg’s work juxtaposes fictional and documentary approaches to filmmaking in order to disrupt the viewers’ expectations of conventional narrative structure. Her films investigate how people negotiate private experiences within the public domain and how we ‘view’ and ‘judge’ others as we move through the city. Through the use of storytelling she addresses people’s relationships to work and creativity in a culturally diverse selection of individuals’ everyday lives. By combining voice over, interview footage and overtly staged scenes, questions arise about the authenticity of unfolding events. Ginsborg works with non-actors and is interested in how a filmmaker can capture the subtlety of peolple’s continually shifting performances in real life.
Ginsborg graduated from MA Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, London in 2002 where she specialized in film and video. She has exhibited in galleries and festivals including the Venice Biennale, Serpentine Gallery (London), the Pompidou Centre (Paris), Strozzina Centre for Contemporary Culture (Florence) and the Walker Arts Centre, USA. She is currently artist-in-residence at The London Chest Hospital and working on a new film. Her films are distributed by Lux.
