Sagi Groner, Born Rehovot Israel 1971
Living and working in Amsterdam

Groner works with film, video and moving images from the internet. This imagery is both source and end product of his work. Out of sampled footage of films, documentairies, and historic archival material, he searches, finds and shapes new images and storylines. These stories are often sociological or political in their content.

A personal deconstruction of a war document. A war experienced in exile through images from the news, a correspondence with home and interviews with fellow ex-patriots. An intuitively collected stock of images, is compiled together a few years later, to reflect on mediated-memory.
