Filmform (est. 1950) is dedicated to preservation, promotion and worldwide distribution of experimental film and video art. Constantly expanding, the distribution catalogue spans from 1924 to the present, including works by Sweden’s most prominent artists and filmmakers, available to rent for public screenings and exhibitions as well as for educational purposes.
Interbeing is based on documentation of social structures and their different approaches to trust and fear. The material is presented through a thermal camera whose optics do not register what is visible to the eye but render shades of temperature, a perspective granting all living beings the same conditions of representation.
The camera also makes a heat shadow visible upon and after physical touch. The heat remains, like traces of utmost commonality in attempts at making direct contact, as well as in public, everyday chance encounters.
Martina Hoogland Ivanow is an artist working mainly with photography but also with film. An interest in what is complex and contradictory runs like a common thread through her work in which the photographic process becomes an investigation into our often dualistic nature and how the self relates to the outside world.
She has published 4 books: Far too Close, 2010 (SteidlMack), Speedway, 2013 (Livraison books), Satellite + Circular wait + Second Nature, 2016 (Livraison books & Art and Theory publishing). Her most recent book Early Reading, 2018 (Art and Theory publishing) is part of a larger project that she has worked with for a couple of years. In its entirety, the project consists of non-linear documentation of social structures and their different approaches to trust and fear.
Hoogland Ivanow’s work is represented in the collections of Moderna Museet in Stockholm and The Public Arts Agency, Sweden.
