ARTIST STATEMENT

Shifting Gaze is a film and video-art-music installation about CHOICE, DESIRE and MEMORY. Conceived and directed by Laia Cabrera (filmmaker and video-artist) and created in collaboration with Erica Glyn (music production, composer and singer) and Isabelle Duverger (photography and graphic animations). The project nature is based on creative collaboration between different disciplines. Shifting Gaze looks at our feeling of place and time in its most stripped down state: simply ‘being’. Hovering on the borders of consciousness, the film is an exploration of both event and human presence. The strongest principle of growth lies in human choice. Drawing on the fragments-presence of the body, faces, urban construction, nature, textures and remains of activity, "Shifting Gaze" takes you to the submerged, the transformed, the no longer visible.

The piece was also presented as site specific installations at :
