GULI SILBERSTEIN                                                                           

A London-based artist creating digital video work since 2001, when graduated from The New School University, MA in Media Studies program, NYC USA. 

My artwork progress can be be divided to three stages: 2000-2014 - processing personal recordings, found footage, and mixes of both, to produce new perspectives on issues of war and perception, 2015-2020 - using 'glitch' technique to break down the image and thus find new landscapes in personal and media footage. And since 2020 - AI - where I move between new technologies that come along and try to push them to their artistic frontier, usually in short video loops minted as NFTs.

Over the years, my work has gathered recognition, winning awards and shown in many festivals and art venues such as WRO Media Art Biennale Poland, Transmediale festival Berlin, Jihlava International Film Festival, London Short Film Festival, Bemis Center For Contemporary Arts USA and the Royal Scottish Academy Edinburgh. 
I'm a curated artist at Sedition Art London alongside big names like Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin and Yoko Ono, and member at the NFT platforms Foundation and MakersPlace where I am a featured artist. My AI work was curated by leading creative AI researcher Luba Elliott in her Computer Vision Art Gallery. I'm a member of the collective Art Novo, alongside Irit Batsry, Robert Cahen, Theo Eshetu, Terry Flaxton, John Sanborn, and Nataša Prosenc Stearns

Inspired by dreams, visions, and memories, my works experiment with video form as poetic expression, and tell visual stories, developing thematic inquiries. It’s a continuous practical research, a life project, tracking down peculiar usages of computer processes, to produce moving image assemblies that form new aesthetics fed by inner personal experiences.

"In Silberstein’s works, the image error or glitch is always representative, a phantasmagoric presence of sorts, evoking the spiritual, the political, the intimate, the human: it’s the activity of mankind at its most critical, involved in war, conflict, acts of resistance, but also in the intimate, the tender and its relation with nature."
