I believe in the power of movement. I take you on an adventure where through change a new world can arise. I place a unique frame around a movement or event. Sometimes philosophical, sometimes abstract, sometimes aesthetic, always looking for underlying feelings, for the unnameable; a new world.
I tell image based stories. I make video art, photos and films.
I am Silvie Konings, both a director, photographer and a video artist. I work intuitively from my heart, transferring the images I see to the lens, from my mind to your eyes. Through my fascination with form and colour I take the viewer into a new world, which allows them to create their own stories.
I graduated from WDKA in Rotterdam in 2015. During my studies and afterwards I absorbed all facets of film making in all its different appearances. I work intuitively from my heart and I transfer my fascinations and the images that touch me directly to the lens. I love stories and images that stimulate and surprise you. I have a fascination for shape and color, for light and darkness, from which I take the viewer into a new world. A world where you can create your own story. My style is characterised by a genuine passion for people and the ability to get ‘under the skin. I have a burning desire for the stories from life, sometimes philosophical, sometimes abstract, but always with a keen eye for the universal feelings behind them. From the very beginning of my artist path and my studies, I explored the edges of the film and documentary genre, both visually and narratively, with a special fascination for movement, dance and theatre. The influences of the different genres sometimes provide a bit of magic. For me, the medium of film is there to enlarge our world and to amaze. I am currently working on various productions as a director, designer and video artist.
I love to work together and create together. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or if you want to be challenged.
