Xcèntric. 14th season 2014-2015

Garden Island and other films by Patricia Dauder

Xcèntric, the CCCB's cinema


Patricia Dauder’s films seem to continue her plastic artwork: a practice of attention and intuition of rhythm, a process that defies any attempt at narrative explanation. She started filming in an attempt to perceive the different phases of the creation process of a drawing, something that the eye cannot retain. Since then, she has used the film medium to extend this perception and study it in relation to space and time. The result is a series of dazzling works that project overflowing topographies, optical scans of such basic materials as water or air, utopian architectures or imaginary landscapes, where nothing is explained, it is simply shown. Attended by Patricia Dauder.
