Sol Archer (1983) is a Netherlands based artist working through collaboration with professional and non-professional groups, considering the encounter as a space of production. Frequently employing video as an apparatus for producing a doubling of experience; productive of ‘works’ through collective act, and through movement towards the work, productive of new collectivities and ways of being together.

This extends into a pedagogical practice on structures and systematising group environments focussed on self reflexive film-making practices and the legacy of collaborative film practice in relation to ethnofiction.
