Expanding the realm of the believable, Saskia Olde Wolbers makes narrative videos void of actors, where temporary and unstable miniature film sets, often dipped in paint and filmed under water, play alongside a voice-over as an intuitive guide to the visuals. During her presentation she will screen Kilowatt Dynasty, Placebo, Interloper, Trailer, Deadline and a new work. Olde Wolbers has won the Baloise Prize at the Basel Art Fair and the Beck’s Future Prize. With support from UMMA, Department of Screen Arts and Cultures, the Ann Arbor Film Festival, and MOCAD.
