Lucy uses sound and vision to tell the story of the people she has met. The video camera has become a method of communication, a way to explore the culture and life in which she finds herself and her understanding of the world as well as a way of self-exploration.
“My work is usually about artists like myself and the unique worlds which they have created. I produce films that are 15 to 30 min- long which deal with my favorite genre – the Portrait. Compared to the static depiction of my paintings and photographic portraits, video gives me a more complete picture of the subject. Voice, movement and thought patterns bring the portrait of the subject to life. Video introduces a fourth dimension that I find particularly compelling.” – Lucy Besson
