Film: VANESSA RENWICK: FILMMAKER
Vanessa Renwick's films share a restless spirit, an interest in outlaw art-making, and an unflagging sense of wanderlust. Her films, videos and installations reflect an interest in place, urban transformation, and relationships between bodies and landscapes. Renwick will screen an 80-min. program of her work that begins with early experimental films and concludes with her latest experimental documentary video on the migration of swifts. These short, personal constructions demonstrate a wide range of formal approaches and subjects that include nuclear power, hitchhiking, Toxic Shock and a taste of the wild west, be it a horse fighting a bear, a homoerotic rodeo or the gentrification of Portland, Oregon.
