Presented by Moving Image Arts (MIA) Research at Plymouth University
Spanning film influences, earlier projects, literary and other researches, Salmon will discuss the ins and outs of long form film conception and production and will offer a glimpse into a very ambitious and highly personal project, on it's way to completion.

Of particular interest are the tensions between technical, theoretical and intuitive decisions made during and after production and the vast expanse which must be navigated between what one images and what one achieves while filming with analog technologies.

The illustrated talk will begin promptly at 4.45pm and concludes with a Q+A dicussion with the artist - we expect to finish around 6.15pm

Margaret Salmon creates filmic portraits that weave together poetry and ethnography. Focusing on individuals in their everyday habitats, her films capture the minutiae of daily life and infuse them with gentle grandeur, touching upon universal human themes. Adapting techniques drawn from various cinematic movements, such as Cinema Vérité, the European Avant Garde and Italian Neo-Realism, Salmon’s orchestrations of sound and image introduce a formal lyricism into the tradition of realist film.

Born in 1975 in Suffurn, New York, she graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2003. Whilst a student there she won second prize at the Beck’s futures student show at the ICA. She appeared in the New Contemporaries shows at The Liverpool Biennial and Barbican in London in 2004 and was the first recipient of the MaxMara Art Prize for Woman in association with the Whitechapel in 2006, which included a six month residency at the American Academy in Rome, Italy. Solo shows include Whitechapel Gallery, Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art, Rotterdam, and Store Gallery, London. Margaret Salmon lives and works in Glasgow and New York.
