Showing Seeing

8 June 2014

12.30-1.30pm UCL Art Museum

Helena Hunter

      A screening of Showing Seeing a new short film work by Helena Hunter, followed by a discussion with poet and writer Saradha Soobrayen. The film is set in an optical museum and a museum of theatre and performance. The settings present a framing device for a personal narrative that negotiates the visual acts of remembering and forgetting. As the camera contemplates theatrical objects and optical artifacts a voice recounts experiences relating to looking, training, and performance.
