05.02.2019 | Chloë Bass: This Is A Film | Free

May 2, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Categories: Film, Lecture, Performance Art, Visual Arts


Chloë Bass presents screening and performance This Is A Film as a part of Counterpublic.

This Is A Film (1.8) explores what it means to turn footage into language. Using clips of family home movies found in various online archives, Chloë Bass creates a descriptive piece for the audience to hear and imagine. Where is the film: in the language? In the images that come into each listener’s head? Is it shared between us? What do we see, and how does it make a story?

This Is A Film is part of Chloë Bass’ ongoing project Obligation To Others Holds Me In My Place, a study of intimacy at the scale of the immediate family.

The event is free and open to the public.
