Michelle Eistrup: In the Deep Underground and Up Above
Film, 3-channel video, 33 min
Date: Mai 28th, 2019 | 19: 00-21: 00 Uhr
Location: LURU Kino in der Spinnerei
A film that questions the deep imbedded colonial history within Australia.’What is seen and not seen, what is said and not said.’ Through organic visual interludes, and transitions, some abstract, some vivid, we are taken on a journey through a small town in Western Australia to hear the personal stories of three women, and their accounts of living in this landscape and its history.
Michelle Eistrup is a visual artist, arts producer and instigator of artistic collaboration who lives in Copenhagen, Denmark. Michelle’s art incorporates themes of identity, corporeality, faith, memory and post-colonialism, where her transnational background (Danish, Jamaican, American) is sometimes a point of departure.
Our gratitude to Michael Ludwig & LURU Kino!
