Janis Crystal LIPZIN

(1945- )
Nationality: american

Janis Crystal Lipzin has been called “one of the key American media artist of this era” by Steve Anker, Dean of the School of Film &Video at Cal Arts. She has been making art in virtually every form of reproducible media for nearly forty years. Utilizing such diverse media as 8mm and 16mm film, various kinds and formats of photographic prints and transparencies, video, audio, digital photography, multi-media installations and media performance, she has confronted an array of uncomfortable subjects such as pyromania, prehistoric murder, pesticide abuse, reproductive rights, and mortality.
Another central foundation of her practice is a diverse approach to materials. In her hands light sensitive film becomes a medium to be worked, marked, chemically altered, affected by light both within and exterior to a camera. Lipzin’s work frequently has been at the forefront of an avant-garde art practice that seeks to push the limits of what is possible with the media arts while enriching their possibilities for personal expression. She approaches this effort on a number of fronts:formally within the aesthetics of the film itself, in the overt content of the work, and in the context in which it appears. She creates moving image works that break out of the usual confines of cinema and takes to the street, the storefront, and the abandoned naval shipyard as possible sites of engagement and beyond the conventions of industrial processes.
