Vera Klute

May 1, 2016

This is one of three videos depicting women from 3 generations within the artist's family, which were exhibited in Klute's 2016 solo exhibition at The Molesworth Gallery. This animation is a self-portrait. Drawings, photographs and video footage are merged together into a collage like animation.
The idea was to create a very subtly animated portrait with every aspect of it coming to life. The subject breathes and sighs occasionally. The eyes blink and turn and even the skin texture is alive as the animation constantly fades between almost identical drawings. The floral pattern that is copied from a crockery design endlessly turns with flowers blossoming and fading. 

Installation: Should be seamlessly looped on a 22" flatscreen TV tilted on its side.
