Sara Eliassen is an artist and filmmaker based in Oslo. Her work is a conceptual cinema-practice investigating how aesthetics and narratives presented in moving images create collective memories, and take part in the formation process of subjectivities. She is currently a Phd candidate in artistic research at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts – the Art Academy. Eliassen holds an MFA in film from San Francisco Art Institute and was a studio fellow at The Whitney Museum’s Independent Study Program in 2010/ 2011. Her films Still Birds and A Blank Slate have played extensively at international film festivals, amongst them Venice Film Festival, International Film Festival Rotterdam and Sundance. In 2018, Eliassen executed The Feedback Loop, a year-long project commissioned by The Munch Museum, an exploration on how moving images, screens and screen technologies take part in the production of our memories and actions, looking at parallels between ideological material from 1920- and 30s cinema and political history and the moving image material surrounding us today. The project consisted of a public screen intervention, the programming of a screening series and a solo exhibition with guests at Munchmuseet on the Move – Kunsthall Oslo.
