Martha Colburn

In her work, Martha Colburn uses the stop-motion animation technique to create films and as an extension to them, performances, costumes and exhibitions that transcend the traditional confines of cinema. Her primary focus is on contemporary culture through the eye of art history and historical fact and fiction, addressing sexuality, politics and art.

In New Orleans Colburn wants to collaborate with and learn from specialists in costume design, introduce her practice to the local scene through live events and give animation workshops. She will also continue and intensify existing collaborations with musicians and artist from the city.
