Dana Plays in person.
Experimental filmmaker and digital artist, Dana Plays, known for her moving image and sound composites will present Exquisite corpse series (HD, 2010) a series of experimental pieces. The project revolves around Plays’ evolving historical project, the story of Ottilie Moore, her great aunt who provided safe haven for refuges, including the Jewish artist Charlotte Salomon (Life or Theater?) at Villa L’Hermitage, in Villefranche sur-Mer, in the late 30s and early 40s. Through complex structural and formal approaches to sound image construction, including vertical and horizontal structures, Plays visually explores the intersections between private and public histories, making metaphorical connections between location, setting and place.
