Janis Rafailidou will use this occasion to screen her most recent film-trilogy project, 'Three Farewells' (2013). It’s a work consisting of three separate visual narratives all concentrating on the notion of ‘loss’ and ‘death’ outside an anthropocentric understanding. An analysis on the work will be followed by an examination of the possibilities of narration within a visual art’s use of moving images and the importance of artistic research. Rafailidou’s project was developed during her residency at the Rijksakademie with the support of AFK funds.AboutJanis Rafailidou (1984, Greece) lives between Athens and Amsterdam. Her practice focuses on video art, video installation and narration through the moving image. Rafailidou completed her Doctoral in Fine Art at the University of Leeds (2011) and has participated in international exhibitions, such as Manifesta 8 and Thessaloniki Biennial (2009). She has presented work at Tate Modern, Centre Pompidou and Reina Sofia National Museum (2010).
