Tips This Week ( you guessed it, on Friday): SEEING IS BELIEVING IV W/ JEANNE FAUST
Jeanne Faust, Trovare (film still), 2022
Jeanne Faust's films are like Trojan horses; you always get to see more than you had expected and less than you initially believed to see. In the playful alternation of narrative allusion and the withdrawal of meaning, her works unfold a seductive pull that is hard to resist as a viewer. Likewise, the protagonists of her films seem to be seduced and led astray – by their own profession, by an apparition in the garden behind the rehearsal studio, by a stray dog. In doing so, Faust challenges our cinematographic memory while breaking with familiar narrative conventions and the hierarchies of its staging. What is at stake here is not so much the authenticity or truth to be found behind the images we see, but the inherent logic of a cinematic machine of meaning hidden in plain sight.
anorak is proud to present Faust's previously unscreened work in progress Trovare, which will be shown along with key works from the last 19 years. The screening will be followed by a conversation with the artist.
