Retrospective- Keren Cytter | 5th – 31th March 2016
Keren Cytter’s films destroy modern principles of cinema, searching for a balance between performance and theater. The artist plays with real notions and fiction, involving non-professional actors and cameramen. Her filmic representation adds a surrealist touch to existential concerns such as love, hatred and the human condition giving both a dark and comic reflection of the contemporary society.
Israeli artist’s retrospective is projected in the Auditorium of Piazza della Libertà.
