ANNA VASOF RETROSPECTIVE
Anna Vasof is an architect and media artist. Born in 1985, she studied architecture at the University of Thessaly (2010) in Greece and Transmedia Art (2014) at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. Since 2004 her videos and short movies have been presented in several festivals, some of them winning distinctions. She’s currently writing a Ph.D. thesis about an animation technique that she develops and at the same time working on designing and building innovative mechanisms for producing critical and narrative videos, actions and installations.
Anna Vasof’s works will be presented at Tabor Film Festival in two formats: a film screening titled ‘Hitting my Head on the World and Other Stories’ and an exhibition titled ‘Things and Wonders’.

I visit several cities and I hit my head on different surfaces. I go to the heart of every question and start from zero, reinventing core premises with my own perspective. My Non-Stop Stop-Motion works reinvent a contemporary expanded cinema and deal with the poetic mechanics of persistence of vision. My works with everyday objects (shoes, brooms, pots etc.) deal with social paradoxes and let us see a familiar world from a different perspective.
STVARI I ČUDESA / THINGS AND WONDERS
Izložba Anne Vasof / Exhibition by Anna Vasof
Dvor Veliki Tabor,4. – 12. srpnja 2020. / 4 – 12 July 2020
Things and Wonders is an absurd video theater where we unlearn how to see. The loops in this theater are not repetitions; they deal with social paradoxes and let us see a familiar world from a different perspective.
The author will introduce us to the exhibition by means of a drone performance – ‘Unmanned Tea Party’.
