Sasha Litvintseva: Films, Writing, Projects, Info

Extracted and Circulated

Extracted and Circulated is an ongoing collaborative platform created together with Graeme Arnfield and Beny Wagner, surrounding moving image as compilation, as assembly and as the production of new work. The programs commingle passages from our own film work with images and sounds collected and re-presented from the disorganized archives of YouTube. Allowing each sound or image to become starting points for each other, the project aims to dissolve the hierarchies of found, processed and produced material, exploring the issues of authorship, the value of images, the provenance of their intentionality, their affect and materiality.

Past iterations have been presented at Close-Up Cinema in London (2017 and 2018) and at the Moscow Biennale for Young Art (2018).
