press release

Agnès Varda has had a long and successful international career as filmmaker. Already with her first film she got established; La Pointe Courte from 1954 is considered the starting point of the French New Wave. In recent years, her work as a visual artist has found new and experimental expressions and evolved into installations and thus gained new audiences.

The exhibition at Bildmuseet, her first in Scandinavia, presents a selection of Agnès Varda's documentary film projects from the 1960s and 1970s, as well as newer works that display the boundary-transcending way in which she moves between the cinema theatre and the gallery space; between photography and cinema; between the moving image and the still.
