Anabela Zigova
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Williamsburg

Media:Film/Video;


ARTIST STATEMENT: As writer, director, and producer, artist Anabela Zigova creates films that examine possibilities of narrative, documentary, psychology, and visual stereotypes. Anabela Zigova explores film narrative as a separate language with its own syntax. She sees in film language mainly a potential to create emotional experience complicated by individual perceptions. At the same time, because of its inherent complexity, filmmaking as process sustains levels on which a fine art medium can easily speculate; the sheer difficulty of actually making a film entails serious confrontation with real economic, social and political issues. And by the very nature of the casting, the film medium automatically brings up “uncomfortable” questions of ethnicity and class… So in constructing her current films, separate layers of Anabela Zigova’s work draw on extensive collaboration. The film is based on texts, socio-political research and structured authorship as well as subjective notes and preparatory drawings. Her work with both actors and social activists aims to be unconstrained and it proposes an open format that cultivates its own visual language from within.
