The lecture will include screening of three videos and focus on the artist’s use of exhibition space and ideas regarding production and distribution of her work, which include videos, drawings and text.
Keren Cytter *1977 in Tel Aviv, Israel is currently based in between New York and Berlin. Cytter creates films, video installations, and drawings that represent social realities through experimental modes of storytelling. Characterised by a non-linear, cyclical logic Cytter’s films consist of multiple layers of images; conversation; monologue, and narration systematically composed to undermine linguistic conventions and traditional interpretation schemata. Recalling amateur home movies and video diaries, these montages of impressions, memories, and imaginings are poetic and self-referential in composition. The artist creates intensified scenes drawn from everyday life in which the overwhelmingly artificial nature of the situations portrayed is echoed by the very means of their production.
