Lynn Loo (b. 1975, Singapore) has been based in London since 2004. Loo earned her BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and an MA in Film Studies with Archiving from the University of East Anglia in England. Loo's early films, which she began making in 1997, were semi-narratives—diaristic and poetic. They were shown in festivals, including Cinematexas, Women Make Waves Taiwan and Film Fest Dresden.After moving to England, and encountering works of expanded cinema for the first time, Loo began to make films that emphasize material qualities and investigate relationships in light, time and space between the making processes and the final live projection.
Loo has been working with Guy Sherwin since 2005, adapting his earlier films into multi-projections. This led to both artists producing new works on which they collaborate.Loo and Sherwin have presented programs of live expanded cinema internationally in galleries and film festivals. Venues include CA2M Centro de Art Dos de Mayo (Madrid); Wiener Festwochen (Vienna); EXiS (Seoul); Colour Out of Space (Brighton UK), and Kill Your Timid Notion (Dundee, Scotland).
