Marie Losier

Style becomes ethics. This is proof of the brilliant and maddening heritage of underground cinema of the sixties and seventies. On the fringes of the industry and the spectacular processes entailed in filmmaking, a group of adventurers made films using 16 mm domestic cameras and achieved a double victory: on the one hand, the possibility to work within a budget reduced to the minimum, and on the other, that of gaining the ferocious independence of artists from other disciplines who could indeed create works by themselves using their work tools and without intermediaries. Thus the 16 mm camera is indeed a symbol of the ways of doing things which are in the “do it yourself” spirit and, by extension, subversion and punk. This is why it is not by chance that Marie Losier, a French woman, is in New York making films with cameras using celluloid at an age when the whole world is going digital.

As we said, obviously Marie Losier (Boulogne-Billancourt, France, 1972) is French by birth, and a New Yorker by spirit and adoption. And it is so because her work is a natural continuation of previous visionary film creators in this city, and also of other then counter-cultural foci, such as San Francisco; in particular, characters like the Kuchar brothers in their delirious conception of cinema, or Jack Smith and his camp hieroglyphics, or Kenneth Anger and his pop culture recycling. Happily setting aside the serfdom of the production apparatus, something that doubtlessly marks the nature of her works: “I work alone; I have never had a team; I do everything: camera, sound and edition; only me, my camera and my microphone sometimes, which I use to record interviews, rehearsals or concerts... There is so much creativity in my technique for filming or recording as in the editing that lasts for months without end, where I find the story and the form”.
