About the event
“Here, there and around,”
A special program of Bill Basquin’s short films from the last two decades
“Bill's work is intimate, personal and probing. There is a corporeal relationship with the camera that begins with a question, like a traditional interview or a casual dialogue. This temporary or rather “seasonal” interaction with characters and landscapes, triggers a hypothetical proposal about human behavior, masculinity and vastness, in relation to the nature that surrounds it. With his camera, Bill transgresses the observation space to turn it into a performative one in which his presence becomes evident.”
“El trabajo de Bill es íntimo, personal e inquisitivo. Hay una relación corpórea con la cámara que se inicia con una pregunta, como una entrevista tradicional o un diálogo casual. Esta interacción pasajera o de “temporada”, con personajes y paisajes, gatilla una propuesta hipotética sobre el comportamiento humano, la masculinidad y la inmensidad, en relación con la naturaleza que le rodea. Con su cámara, Bill transgrede el espacio de observación para convertirlo en uno performativo en el que se hace evidente su presencia.”
