Malo Sutra Fish - photographer - filmmaker - writer

Works of a photosensitive epileptic woman. 

Malo Sutra Fish is a French artist currently based in Paris, born in 1985. She has lived and worked in NYC for more than 4 years, and 2 years in Portland, Oregon. Educated at the Lycée International de St-Germain-En-Laye, she also holds a double bachelor in Art History & Art Distribution. She has worked in film distribution, film production, stage production, film and photography festivals, publishing, and translation.

 

Her love for film as a format and material found two outlets: Photography and Filmmaking. Light sensitivity is something this media and she share to the core. Her passion to play, experiment, investigate, and embrace all imperfections of cameras, lenses and films has no limit, thus why Experimental Art has been the foundation of her work. Her aim is to beautify imperfections and breakage following the precepts of Kintsugi, known as the art of resilience. Each subject brings its set of aesthetics, each film its texture. She embraces the possibility to take time into consideration allowing working a slow process. However, she can also work very spontaneously, specifically with street photography, music photography or even landscape photography: catching the moment. Poetry is a core aspect of her artwork.

She currently is a member at the cinema collective L'Etna (France) and at the art collective Flux Factory (USA). Her prior areas of focus are collaborations particularly in short film and music video making, all the while writing a new short film in association with Isao Yamada, and a collection of short stories. 

She works both with analogue and digital cameras, favoring a manual approach.
