Rebecca Salvadori is a Italo-Australian, London-based video artist with a long experience of filming environments following a non-hierarchical/chronological layering and sequencing of audio to footage.
Her film work, including ambiguous short documentaries, artists’ portraits, music videos and non-synced live visuals, is both highly personal and wilfully elusive. Rather than following a classic, linear narrative, these take the form of visual compositions built through chance, association and repetition.
Throughout the years, Salvadori has accumulated an extensive video archive from which she creates assemblages.
This acts as the basis for filmic portraits of moments, people and environments. Salvadori has exhibited her audio/visual work at venues and festivals such as НИИ niimoscow Science & Art (RUS), Macro Museum of Contemporary Art (IT), Barbican Art Center (UK), Festival of Film and Animation Olomouc (CZ), Festival IMAGES (CH), Crosstalk video art Festival (HU), David Lynch’s Silencio (FR), SCHNUCK Glaspalais (NL), Sophiensaele Theatre (DE), Future Everything Festival Manchester (UK), III Point Festival Miami (US), No Bounds Festival x Warp Records (UK), Cafe Oto (UK).
synchronized and non-synchronized exercises of arrhythmic empathy | 2017
Commissioned by composer Sandro Mussida for Ventuno Costellazioni Invisibili limited edition vinyl release.
The two visual compositions present a series of animated shapes and colours, assembled together according to constantly evolving combinations of intentionalities.
The combinations never repeat; the arrhythmic evolving movements attempt to break free from a mechanical, predetermined outcome. The work premiered on the 21th July 2017 at the Encyclopedia of Human Relationships show curated by Mark Fell in Galeria dos Prazeres, Madeira. The video has been selected for several shows including D.REM, a dream sensorium at the Freud Museum, London.
