In her 90th year, Varda presented her first new commission in the UK.

Commissioned by Liverpool Biennial and FACT, 3 moving images. 3 rhythms, 3 sounds is a three-channel video installation combining extracts from her films Vagabond (1985), Documenteur (1981) and The Gleaners (2000).

This visceral installation is a fragmented collection of sounds and visuals from these film works, the poetic images dancing between violence, abstraction and ritual. 3 moving images… highlights the importance of reflection and revisitation within Varda’s work, stimulating questions around temporality and the rhythm of human life.

Agnès Varda is commissioned by Liverpool Biennial and FACT.
