PORTRAIT #3: HOUSE OF SOUND, 2009

Vanessa Renwick is in Berlin! Her works have to do with body and landscape, with locations and all kinds of borders. She works in an experimental and poetic manner, eluding any sort of objectification and thus taking a distinct stand. CROWDOG (1984/98) is about the American Indian movement, her "Portrait Series" (2005–09) are dedicated to the efforts toward independence in Cascadia based on music from the Pacific North-West. BRITTON, SOUTH DAKOTA (2003) is a structural found footage piece with 60-year-old portraits of street children. The triple projection, HOPE AND PREY (2006), deals with hunting and being hunted in the wilderness.
In collaboration with EAST/WEST Project (Portland/Berlin). (May 20)
