Lowave Collection

Lowave's film and video collection has been built between 2002 and 2014 and features over 250 video artists and filmmakers from around the world. The label has contributed to an important number of international exhibitions, biennials, film and video festivals, as well as academic programmes. As Lowave's activities evolve, we have stopped our film distribution and our catalogue serves now as an archive that documents over a decade of film and video art history. A selection of our DVDs is on sale at Re:Voir in Paris.

Sookoon Ang

*1977, Singapore. Lives and works in Singapore.

Sookoon Ang works with video, installation, drawing and printmaking. Her work addresses both the space which we physically dwell in and the interior space within us that is our spiritual, emotional and imaginative world. She often takes common or everyday objects and occurences and presents them in a way that goes beyond our habitual perception.



Danielle Arbid

*1970, Beirut, Lebanon. Lives and works in Paris, France.

Born in Lebanon, Danielle Arbid left her country at the age of 17 to study literature in Paris. In 1997 she followed her intuition and started making films.

Interested in different narrative forms, her work alternates between fiction, first person documentaries and video essays; and sometimes she experiments with mixing different genres. Selected by a number of festivals in France and around the world, her films have received both critical and public acclaim as well as several awards including the golden leopard and silver leopard at the Locarno film festival as well as the Albert Londres prize and a grant from the Villa Medicis.

Her two feature films Dans les champs de bataille and Un homme perdu have successively been selected for the Quinzaine des réalisateurs at the Cannes film festival. Her work has been the focus of several retrospective screenings, notably the Bastia festival in 2006, Paris Cinéma in 2007, and the 2007 Gijon festival, and at the La Rochelle festival in 2008.
