Dark Spring Studio
Dark Spring Studio is a London-based production company dedicated to the production and distribution of artist moving image works that focus on stories that are personal and that are committed to social change. Dark Spring Studio welcomes collaborations on co-production, curation and distribution.
I am a multimedia artist whose hybrid works explore the transformative potential of apparatuses, dreams and memories in the creation of societal myths and narratives. In my recent projects, I’ve employed diverse archival sources in conjunction with AI tools to examine notions of agency, belonging and identity while attempting to trace complex lineages of meaning and representation.
I am a 2021 Jarman Award nominee. My first feature film, What We Shared (2021), which I directed and produced, premieres at the 65th BFI London Film Festival. My previous film, uchronia no.1, received Jurors’ Award at the 59th Ann Arbor Film Festival, while noonwraith blues, was awarded the Honourable Mention Award at the 2021 United States Super 8 Film and DV Festival, New Jersey and it was among the three winners of the 2020 Bomb Factory Artist’s Film Festival, London. My films have screened at many festivals and galleries worldwide: the Edinburgh International Film Festival, CROSSROADS, Ann Arbor Film Festival, Anthology Film Archives New York; Studio Gallery, Warsaw; Whitechapel Gallery, British Film Institute, Institute of Contemporary Arts and Visions in the Nunnery, London.
I am also the recipient of many international grants, most recently, the Arts Council England Project Grants, British Council, New Mexico Arts, New Mexico Humanities Council, and the National Endowment for the Arts (USA), among many others.
