deSERVICEGARAGE hosts NFTA: Ginta Tinte Vasermane

Ginta Tinte Vasermane, 'Working Frames' (2012), video still

deSERVICEGARAGE is pleased to host the Netherlands Film and Television Academy (NFTA) Master of Film Graduation Show by Ginta Tinte Vasermane.

Ginta Tinte Vasermane graduates from the NFTA Master of Film programme with her multi-channel video installation 'Working Frames' (2012). In her non-narrative videos she composes and choreographs theatrical-performative scenes, which play with the relationship between bodies, architecture, the space of the frame and their limits and elasticity (expansion). While setting up human bodies in the architectural space and in the space of the frame as sculptural elements, she stages an existence with its own logic and rules.

"Movements are composed in a specific rhythm and become irrational and possible at the same time. The arrangements of body positions are expressive of, and play with, the inner conditions of an observer placed in diverse social conditions, spaces and structures. With light irony and poetic methods I play with a subject through staged scenarios. There’s a questioning of who we are and what we do in specific locations."

Ginta Tinte Vasermane (b. 1979 Riga, Latvia) lives and works in Amsterdam. She has a Bachelor's Degree from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy (VAV, 2010) and is currently graduating from the Netherlands Film and Television Academy Master of Film programme.
