MAIDEN LA Biennial

Film premiere of “Creation Scenes”

From the artist’s “Lost Tapes” series comes “Creation Scenes,” based on footage misplaced for almost twenty years and recently re-discovered.

Using traditional film techniques like scratching the emulsion with a needle, splicing and taping the film, in combination with newer technology in editing including Ipad drawing and animated Gifs- to create a soft-spoken and evocative short film.

As a young filmmaker in the nineties, the artist would encourage intense performative acts by her friends and lovers in front of VHS and Super 8mm film cameras. Dawn, an ex-girlfriend, and Jesse, the artist’s ex-husband, as an artist in his own right, are subjects in this film.

“Creation Scenes” examines the idea of who is creator and who is the creation: woman birthing man; artist as the hand of ‘God’ -the filmmaker… A meta-narrative of a disembodied artist drawing on himself – as the filmmaker draws on top of him: ”X-ing out her exes’s…”


The film premieres at the Maiden LA Biennial September 1-20 2020.

You can view this film and others by the artist on VIMEO or via the FILM tab above on this website.
