ARTIST STATEMENT

 

As a filmmaker, multimedia and installation artist, my work combines different materials, techniques and performance practices for altered perspectives on texture and form utilization, mostly of a time-based nature. Playful undertones of lateral thinking reveal my love for absurdism. My narrative film work tends towards character-based stories, with avant-garde structures that strive to defy genre expectations (often considered experimental by conventional narrative standards), and weave in magic-realist elements. Fascinated by moral ambiguity and heightened-realism, my practice usually delves into these realms – creating worlds that symbolically externalize the inner-psychology of character. With a background in theatre, my practice also plays with performing arts processes, to form stories that manifest organically through a ‘channelling’ process of character investigation and moving image creation.

 

TEACHING ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

 

Emma Rozanski is an Australian filmmaker, multi-media artist and an MFA graduate of Bela Tarr’s acclaimed yet short-lived film.factory experiment in Sarajevo. She has a BA in performing arts from the Queensland University of Technology and began her artistic career path in the theatre. Emma’s film and art practice plays with performing arts processes, to form stories that manifest organically through a ‘channelling’ process of character investigation and moving image construction, often using movement-based theatre exercises to explore the inner-worlds she is creating. Emma has held various performance-creation, character development and directing actors for the screen workshops in the UK, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Australia and the USA. She also tutors private pupils in screen acting and monologue preparation.
