Artist uses 16mm film to create quilts

Sabrina Gschwandtner

I’ve been working on my film quilt series, which I started in 2009.  My quilts utilize 16 mm film footage culled from early Feminist documentaries. I retain allusions to the materials’ former narratives while reworking them with my own personal footage. The works are hung like curtains in the windows of exhibition spaces, or displayed on gallery walls via light boxes. I’ve just finished a new piece for the exhibition “alt_quilts: Sabrina Gschwandtner, Luke Haynes, Stephen Sollins,” on view at the American Folk Art Museum until Jan 5, 2014. I also just completed an interview for the catalog “Sabrina Gschwandtner: Sunshine and Shadow,” which was published by the Philadelphia Art Alliance and includes text by Glenn Adamson, Sarah Archer, and Julia Bryan-Wilson.
