Blue Screen #7 - Stéphanie Roland
8PM // Rue Van Meyelstraat 49, 1080 Molenbeek
Stéphanie Roland is a Belgian / Micronesian visual artist and filmmaker living and working in Brussels. Her practice resides between documentary and the imaginary, Roland makes films and installations exploring invisible structures, hyperobjects and deep time; from the ecological and political to the geologic and cosmic.
During Blue Screen # 7 we will show 'The empty sphere’ (2022) an experimental documentary by Stéphanie Roland which portrays a space object and its fall into the darkness of a space cemetery. As a reverse sci-fi journey, this essay mixes reality and fiction to guide us, like a stalker, to the outskirts of an invisible place. Next to this film we will show the video loop ‘Exoplanet’ (2022) made with a self constructed camera, which translates sound into image.
Stéphanie Roland will also give us an insight into her current research ‘Drop! Cover! And hold on!’ which is set in the areas around the fault lines of Los Angeles.
In dialogue with the work of Stéphanie Roland we will show a selection of films by Bas Jan Ader, Marjolijn Dijkman & Toril Johannessen.
