Sidsel Becker

The camera is my body and the silent movement of my eye, it is a circular motion between sleep and awake, time and space. Soon I will find myself where I have been all along.

My filmwork is based in the tradition of fine art photography. I was always curious about stretching a moment, carry over the stillness from photography to the moving image. I am working from a longing for silence, a curiosity of the circular conception of time, memory and archive materiale. Exploring the notion of womanhood through generations, the longing for, and challenges of, giving form and revisiting rooms constructed by memory. It is the basic substance of all my projects.

I have been working with photography and video since late nineties in various and changing contexts, always exploring the space within – and around the image. I hold a Masters in Production Design from The Danish Design School, and in Film and Video Production from Rhode Island School of Design (RISD).
