LOOP CITY SCREEN VIDEO ART FESTIVAL PARTICIPATION
Interview with Leyli Alakbarova
Leyli Alakbarova (Azerbaijan, 1980) was a student at Metàfora between 2021-2023. This exhibition stems from the wonderful video she produced for last year’s Graduation Show.
During the interview we asked about her artistic process and the reasons behind her work.
About Leyli Alakbarova
In her film practice, Leyli Alakbarova investigates the influence that the place of birth and inhabitance may have on the way we perceive the world. Her films presented in the frame of the LOOP festival explore the long-term effect that being a part of the Soviet Union had on the people of Azerbaijan. Her work is based on daily scenes, domestic situations, educational institutions, and their role in people’s lives in Azerbaijan in the 80s and 90s when everything and everyone was highly influenced by the Soviet Union regime and later its collapse.
