Very lucky to have started Week 1 of our #VideoArtResidency with Sunè Woods. Her video and sound art works were chosen for many reasons, one being that we felt the works spoke directly to many people in our #LeimertPark community. Today is the last day to see her deeply moving works…don’t miss out! “Conversation (room one) is a two-channel video installation with a staged dialogue between a father and daughter. The project began as a series of conversations with women both approaching and well into their thirties who described relationships with their fathers as complicated. I worked with two Los Angeles based actors, Simone Vicari Moore and Kim Estes to explore themes of intimacy, vulnerability, family, and absence. Language and how it is emoted, guarded, and translated through the body are critical points of inquiry for me.
G-Bombs & Thangs (room two) is a sound installation which and was conceived in tandem with Conversation and the themes it aims to address. Comedians, particularly black comedians historically have played a crucial role in providing insight into the underbelly of American society. It was important for me to work with Tiffany Haddish who offers her astute improvisational translation of daughter/father relationships.” #art #leimertparkrenaissance #sunewoods
