HER* HANDS AND HIS SHAPE
TUESDAY, MAR 24 2020 - SUNDAY, MAR 29 2020
In their dual screen 16 mm phantasmagoria the artists conjure past and future ghosts of women who made films politically. Their doubles appear intertwined with landscapes and objects that once haunted them and will continue to do so every time they are taken out of their suspended animation through the means of projection. There is no avoiding the ghosts in the machines. In moments of haunted liveness all is doomed to disappear and return in other shapes.
