Project description: A Tracing in Lighter Colors
The artist uses her aunt's funereal photograph as evidence of a pivotal moment in her family history, attempting to unravel the event with myth, bad memory, and cartoon drawings of rabbits. The presentation is video-based with some animated images but remains deliberately low quality with cheap sound effects.
George Ferrandi, FF Alumn, performs at the Chashama Theater, Wednesday, September 4th and 25th, 2002.
George Ferrandi annotates her family's history using a funeral photograph, projections of cartoon rabbits and a toy saxaphone in this darkly whimsical monologue, A Tracing in Lighter Colors. This piece closes out an amazing 2 hour show featuring a wonderfully eclectic bill of musicians, puppeteers and performance artists: Sxip Shirey, Lisa D'Amour, Rema Sands, John Moran and Erin Eagar.
