presents ... "Perceptual Experiments"
Screening of a selection of celluloid film experiments investigating the visual and the olfactory through unique procedures. Printed sequences on adhesive -then duly placed on transparent film- create an impressionistic film, with feminist overtones. In the performance Petrichor earth, leaves, plants and flowers form a harmonious landscape of fragrant vegetation whose scent refreshes and inspires.
