retrospective Emma Calder
With a retrospective of British artist Emma Calder, Tricky Women/Tricky Realities once more a pioneer of animated film into the limelight. Since the 1980s, the queen of collage has been bringing punk aesthetics to the screen with cut-outs, potato prints, ink and “wash on paper” while breaking new ground in mixed-media filmmaking.
Emma Calder’s unorthodox, subjective portraits of femininity and sexuality are vivid and tangible. Her films question the gendered hierarchies in which that we live. The retrospective shows how her early experiments developed into a sophisticated one have developed a complete work.
