Oona Libens is a belgian-swedish artist and musician. Her work revolves around media-archeology and the history of the (moving) image. She develops a distinct universe by creating a dialogue between historic and recent media phenomena — from shadow theatre as the most primitive form of moving image, over the magic lantern, the computer or TV-screen, to today’s entertainment society and Google. With her performances Oona Libens tries to expand our experience of the image and the screen, to create an analogue virtual reality and to make an entertainment machine that is slow, hesitates, falters and fails.
