Ines Cristovão von Bonhorst

GlowWorm - 2012 - 13.20 mnGlowWorm is the line between birth, life and death. These three states are made by emotions and effects, they are in our consciences, our incorporeal spirit, in short of memories and dreams. Our experience is made by the light of our memory and the memories of who surround us.

Ines have a BA(Hons) in Film &TV production at Westminester University and a HND in Multimedia at Kent Institute of Arte and Design, she is a Director, producer and video artist with over 10 years of activity. Her works range from documentaries, long and short films, experimental films and video art installations, produced UK, Portugal and globally. In her work she often explores notions of identity, form, human limit within a physical and mental realm and our relationship with society using the subconscious, surrealism and the counterfeit of being. She loves to mix the deceptive of the performance art, theater, circus, with life itself and thinks that the boundaries between the two realities are not so far from each other. Von Bonhorst uses space, architecture and mood as a way to tell a story or represent the sensations given by the location itself. Many of her works try to create a spatial relationship between participants, she tries to create a connection between the real and the fictitious and aims to provoke sensations taken from our actual society such as anxiety, fear, love, claustrophobia and so on. She interacts with the viewer using her video installations in a way that the audience can gain a new insight into their own idea of existence. Von Bonhorst’s works often come as a result of prolific collaborations between different artists, such as composers, performers and visual artists.
