Autoritratto, 2020, 8mm to digital, single channel, colour, 4 min.

Synopsis

A short piece commissioned by Antimatter Media Art, a "portrait of the artist by the artist", first exhibited as part of Automat compilation. It consists of recycled 8mm footage of Canadian landscapes, mixed materials, ink and film cement. 

"In Self-Portrait, Federica Foglia (re)constructs her dislocated immigrant identity through the home movies of others, enacting a search for the self and creating a work of striking filmic autopoiesis."
