Dominique Blüher, Julia FabryLa troisième vie d'Agnès Varda
Silent Green presents the book of the most comprehensive exhibition to date in Germany on the last creative period of the French filmmaker, photographer and visual artist Agnès Varda, who died in 2019. Varda is considered one of the most influential creative figures of our time, who constantly reinvented herself in the course of her life’s work, which spanned more than six decades. However, the third creative period of the pioneer of modern cinema is less known in Germany. It began in 2003 at the Venice Biennale and includes installations that reflect Varda’s joy in experimenting between documentary and fiction formats, her poetic and abstract realism, and her sensitive observations of socio-political issues in various visual media.
Agnès Varda (1928-2019) worked as a photographer in the 1950s, shooting for the Festival d’Avignon, for example, and reporting from China, Cuba, Portugal and Germany. In 1954, she produced her first feature film, La Pointe Courte, which contributed to the advent of the New Wave. Since 2003 she has worked as a visual artist, mounting numerous exhibitions with installations, videos and photographs.
Julia Fabry, independent curator, visual artist and video artist, has worked with Varda since 2007.
