Heidi PHILLIPS (Canada) is an experimental filmmaker and installation artist from Manitoba with an affinity for the tactility of the filmic medium. Phillips often uses thrifted super-8 films and darkroom experiments to push her work into new places. Phillips’ old-school process frequently becomes part of the content, as grainy scratched films are merged with images lifted from found footage to create mesmerising, transcendent works.
