Maureen Selwood in person!

Revered contemporary animator Maureen Selwood uses distinctive meshes of live footage and hand drawing, blending image and text to create work that is praised for its joyous eroticism and buoyant wit. Tonight’s visual treats include: the experimental reconstructed found-footage narrative Mistaken Identity (2001); lost love humor in Hail Mary (1999); metaphoric allusions drawn from childhood memories in Flying Circus: An Imagined Memoir (1995); the romantic Roman shadows of As You Desire Me (2003); and her newest project, “an exercise to reduce mental conflict,” a Power Point presentation entitled Drawing Lessons (2005) (KJ Mohr). 1995-2005, Maureen Selwood, USA, ca. 55 min, various formats.
