Esther Urlus (Netherlands) is a Rotterdam-based artist working with motion picture film formats Super8, 16mm and 35mm. Resulting in films, performances and installations, her works always arise from DIY methods. Kneading the material, by trial, error and (re) inventing, she creates new work. Urlus is the founder of WORM Filmwerkplaats, an artist-run workspace dedicated to motion picture film as an artistic, expressive medium. Her work has been exhibited and screened at film festivals worldwide, among other Oberhausen Short Film Festival, Sonic Acts, and the International Film Festival Rotterdam.
