A film-maker whose work brings together conceptual art and structural cinema from a radical feminist perspective
A film-maker who divides her time between California and the Basque Country. Her work draws together conceptual art and structural cinema from an incarnate and radical feminist perspective. She holds a master’s degree from the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), and a BA in Fine Art from Bard College. Having taught at the University of California in San Diego and at CalArts, she is now a professor of fine art and humanities at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.
Her films, most of them shot on 16 mm film, are set in natural, urban and domestic spaces in and around Los Angeles. Under the generic title Landscape Plus, they move between intimate interior spaces and the broad, open landscapes of California, with the intention of capturing a geography that is transformed by affective and subjective states. She has worked as a programmer for the CCCB’s Xcentric cinema, and her work forms part of the collection at the Museo Reina Sofía.
