Papillon d’amour

Date calendar  Saturday, February 2, 2019
Time clock  10:00am - 5:00pm (7h)
Location Media Arts Gallery

By subjecting fragments from Akira Kurosawa’s film Rashomon to a mirror effect, Provost creates a hallucinatory scene of a woman’s reverse chrysalis into an imploding butterfly. This physical audiovisual experience produces skewed reflections upon love, its lyrical monstrosities, and a wounded act of disappearance.
