On Friday, 30 September at 4 pm British artist Laura Buckley will speak about her works.

Laura Buckley is the main guest of the Kumu Art Film Festival KuFF, her film The Magic Know-How will be presented at the KuFF’s opening screening Moving Pictures: Artist’s Films from the Film London Jarman Award on 29 September 2016 at 7 pm in Kumu Auditorium.
Laura Buckley works expansively with moving image, sound, light, sculpture and digital print. Working with scanned imagery, her prints feed back into her projected videos which when combined with footage from life create highly abstracted environments. On entering Buckley’s installations a collective memory is evoked where various of states of mind are played out, from melancholy and anxiety to euphoria. Combining footage and audio from life with studio produced sound, the viewer is taken on a journey through a combination of parts intertwining personal, structural, and emotional dynamics.
