Artist-Talk: Pim Zwier (the Netherlands),

Artist in the NCCA Art residence in Kronstadt

Dutch film director and media artist Pim Zwier will talk about his art and current video project “Three Dimensions of Time” that he has been working on at the NCCA Art Residence in Kronstadt.

The project will be a film, in which the artist will use and investigate the technology of color separation, which was once used by the Russian photographer, chemist and inventor Sergei Prokudin-Gorsky to produce color photographs. Each scene of the film will be shot from the same position at three different moments of time. Three shots with filters (red, green and blue), combined together, form natural colors in all motionless elements of a picture. Simultaneously transitory elements - people, animals, machines - move through these scenes in deviant colors, leaving only a transparent trace, as if they are memories or ghosts.

Pim Zwier is a film maker and media artist. Graduated from Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam. His works balance between documentaries, experimental film and video-art. Zwier’s films and video installations were shown at different international festivals, exhibitions, and on television. Zwier was a member of Filmbank, a Dutch distributor of experimental film, also curated various film programs and was a jury member at several international film festivals.
