BEST EX­PER­I­MEN­TAL FILM­MAKER

NOW Magazine - Best of Toronto - - Art -

MIKE HOOLBOOM Mike Hoolboom has made a film with no images at all, apart from a white screen. He has made films en­tirely from found footage. He has flooded films with his voice, and dis­persed his voice among oth­ers. Celluloid, video, im­age, text, fic­tion, un­fic­tion – ev­ery­thing is ma­te­rial to be worked, sweated and thrown up on screen. Hoolboom’s rest­less, brainy mis­sives from in­side his head aren’t just the work of a writer who makes films, but of an artist who writes in pic­tures and sounds.
