Something to do with my Father

2014, 3 screen video installation, 10 min.

***

Jana Koelmel’s video, Something to Do with My Father (2014),  is an immersive installation using three screens.  A whirling dancing girl turns alone in a dusty pool; wind pulls and feeds a tower of flame; bodies of water surround and rock a small raft upon which two people stand; the forest throbs. The hypnotic sound is a combination of spoken narrative and an internal hum of memory; the storyline flows from screen to screen with the fluidity of water. One senses a wealth of metaphors, an internal dreamscape and a tender analysis of another time.
