Info

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.  

Sol has exhibited widely, including in the Sydney Biennial, Sydney, AU; Rozenstraat, Amsterdam, Golden Thread, Belfast, Northern Ireland, NL; Le Crac19, Montbeliard, FR; Index Foundation, Stockholm, SE; TULCA, Galway, IR; Le Lieu Unique, Nantes, FR; MuKHA, Antwerp, BE; and more.

Residency programs Sol has participated in include the Jan van Eyck Academy, Maastricht, NL; Capacete, Rio de Janeiro, BR; IASPIS, Stockholm, SE; Vicinities, Belfast, UK; PHLOX, Huns, NL; AIR Anterp, BE; Het Wilde Weten, Rotterdam, NL; and Digital Art Studios, Belfast, UK

Projects

Who We Are When We’re Together we a elective project designed for the BEAR, the Base for Experiment and Artistic Research at Artez academy in Arnhem. 

 

With a cross year group we focussed on modes of representation and critical readings of ethnographic, ethnofiction, and collaborative film works. 

We addressed the colonial history of Ethnography, the processes of critiquing this through the Ethnofiction turn, questions of representation and speech, and the artists in the group collectively produced works as both subject and director of the cameras gaze. 

 

The website built to showcase their works can be viewed here:
