Agnes Varda on Poetry and Cinema

It’s been far too long since I’ve been active on the blog. So many things have happened that there is too much to tell in one post. So I will get myself going with a barrage of visual inspiration that I’ve been gathering in the past few months. My work has been transitioning from the sculpture and installation back to photography and video lately. I find it easier to think in images, sound and text than objects or spaces at the moment. So instead of trying force work that is material-based, I’m going to go with the flow and release the image-based side of my practice again.

I’ve been researching film poems and cinematic non-fiction, the essay film and the personal camera. In my readings, I came across Agnes Varda. I remember that a film of hers was playing at the Glasgow Film Theatre when I was in second year at art school, but I never got around to seeing it. Now I wish I had! Varda is a fascinating woman with such an innovative approach to cinema. Can’t wait to see more of her work.
