Eeva Siivonen’s experimental moving image practice engages with strategies of documentary, essay, and found footage film practices. She employs these strategies to construct affective and immersive moving image installations and single channel works that speak to the experience of dislocation and fractured relationship to body, language, and place. They describe subjective experience in ways that resist separation between self and other, interior and exterior, human and nonhuman, and living and nonliving. They trace the deep yet precarious connections that emerge between human and nonhuman bodies and ecosystems; connections that are constantly both found and severed. Her practice maps an experiential space that is both permeated with vitality and haunted by personal and ecological loss. Her ethos is to create space for compassion and empathy by embracing the impossibility of gaining knowledge of ourselves and others and our place in the world.
