 LOOK FOR ME (Still) - Courtesy Lucy Kerr

LOOK FOR ME is a multimedia project intersecting a two channel film and a live performance. The film component of this work was shot on 16mm using an Arri S camera supplied by the cinema arts organization Mono No Aware. The piece is a visual portrait of a female figure in conversation with her memory. The performer on stage is multiplied through the projected images of herself in distant landscapes. This work is inspired by Simone de Beauvoir’s notion of ambiguity, in which a person is painted as being both subject and other. In LOOK FOR ME, the figure is extracted from herself as Other. The audience is invited to witness the performer as if she is seeing herself through the lens of her imagination. This project is directed and produced by Lucy Kerr with assistance from the cinema arts organization Mono No Aware and the Center for Performance Research. The piece was shot in Brooklyn, NY, in Marfa, Texas and in the oceans of the east coast. It will premiere in Fall 2016. The piece features Elyse Desmond and is being scored on analog synthesizers by Clay Wilson. Carmen Hilbert is the director of photography and David Bartner is the editor of this project.
