Artist and filmmaker Graeme Thomson is co-founder with Silvia Maglioni of TERMINAL BEACH - a cross-media art platform to investigate new configurations of image, sound, text and spectatorship - they have made films and photo-essays, sound and videoinstallations, solo and group exhibitions, performances, experimental radio shows as well as publishing numerous texts.
In 2009 they completed their first feature film, Facs of Life, which draws on encounters with a number of former students of Gilles Deleuze, navigating between the terrains of documentary, fiction, essay and video art to explore aspects of Deleuze's philosophical legacy.
Together with Through the Letterbox, a high-definition 'refilming' of the video archive of Gilles Deleuze's seminar at Vincennes, and Wolkengestalt, considering September 11 and its aftermath through the prism of Goethe's meteorological diaries, their other films include Ghosts of Chance, The balade of Dèsastronaute #1 and Statues.
Their work has been presented in various international institutions and art foundations including TATE Britain, Museum Ludwig, 16beaver, Fondazione Pistoletto, European Media Art Festival, Fundação Clovis Salgado, Bétonsalon, Amsterdam Film Experience, Maison Rouge, Gasworks, Stedelijk Museum, Kunstenzentrum Z33, Telic Arts Exchange, Goldsmiths, ENS, Museu de Arte Contemporânea Serralves, UCLA, Lebanese Academy of Fine Arts, Museo MALBA.
Graeme Thomson is currently living in Paris where she is working with Silvia Maglioni on a new feature film, GIRL FROM THE NOUVELLE VAGUE, as well as working in collaboration with a transnational group of artists and theorists on KAFKAMACHINE, the aim of which is to realize Félix Guattari’s project to make a film by Kafka, and on a project to publish a script of a lost film.
