by Sabina Maselli / 7' 33'' / Australia / 2019 / 16mm / exp
‘Landing' is a ritual in film that performs the return of the celestial body to the terrestrial body, through the act of spinning, mirroring and altering time. Hand processed colour reversal film, accompanied by a soundtrack composed of a single fragment of a woman’s voice that is replicated and modulated, circling around the image at different speeds. Part of a series of works that are concerned with the nature of time, memory and magic. Through the act of repetition (both the camera and the body), an animist transformation can occur. A merging of the female and celestial body. Soundtrack by Erkki Veltheim.
Sabina Maselli is an artist and filmmaker who makes multilayered works that are presented as films, installations and live performances. She uses both analogue and digital processing, through a very physical engagement with her materials. She sees her works as sites for transformation between body, memory and technology, and how they manifest in the physical, material, mystical, and mythological realms. She also directs music videos, and collaborates regularly with musicians and performance arts companies in audio-visual shows and expanded cinema works. Sabina is core member of the film collective AFW (Artist Film Workshop) based in Melbourne, Australia.
