Silvia Maglioni & Graeme Thomson
Graeme Thomson & Silvia Maglioni are filmmakers and artists whose work interrogates potential forms and fictions emerging from the ruins of the moving image, and whose practice includes the creation of short and feature films, exhibitions, sound and video installations, film-performances, eventworks, radio shows, tube-tracts and books. Their artistic production uses cinema in expanded form to reactivate lost or forgotten archives and histories and to create new modes of collective engagement with contemporary thought. Thomson and Maglioni's films include “Wolkengestalt, Facs of Life, Through the Letterbox, In Search of UIQ and Disappear One”. As artists in residence at Les Laboratoires d'Aubervilliers, they have been developing a project, “common infra/ctions”, that forges connections between infra-forms and the development of "vernacular technologies", including the creation of a “Dark Matter Cinema Tarot and a Centre for Language Unlearning”. Their work has been presented in international film festivals, museums and art spaces including FID-Marseille, Bafici, Jihlava, FIFVC-Beirut, Centre Pompidou, Anthology Film Archives, Tate Britain, Serralves, Redcat, MACBA, The Showroom, KHOJ, Castello di Rivoli, Institute of Modern Art Brisbane, Whitechapel, Casco, CA2M. They are now preparing a new film, “Common Birds”.
