Winner of the Absolute Art Award in 2009, Keren Cytter realizes films, video installations, and drawings that represent social realities through experimental ways of narration. Characterised by a non-linear, cyclical logic Cytter’s films consist of multiple layers of images, conversations, monologues and voice-over systematically composed to undermine linguistic conventions and traditional interpretation mechanisms. Recalling amateur home movies and video diaries, these montages of impressions, memories, and imaginings are poetic and self-referential in composition.
On show also some big size black and white drawings realized expressly for the exhibition, which have a dialogue with the footages from the film. The drawings realized on vinyl leather fabric become curtains used to play with the idea of theater curtains and of the installation.
