Shifting Gaze - Georgetown Glow, Washington DC - December 2015
Shifting Gaze: A film installation about Choice, Desire & Memory
LAIA CABRERA & CO. (LAIA CABRERA + ISABELLE DUVERGER) featuring ERICA GLYN, NEW YORK, NY
C&O CANAL WALL AT 1064 WISCONSIN AVENUE at the rear of Georgetown Park
Shifting Gaze is a film-art-music installation about choice, desire and memory conceived and directed by Laia Cabrera (filmmaker and video artist) and created in collaboration with Erica Glyn (music, composer and singer) and Isabelle Duverger (animation and mapping). Shifting Gaze is a film about identity, about making choices, a memory in act. Drawing from the body, faces, urban patterns, nature and remains of activity, the piece explores a notion of choice, linked to desire and memory - choice being the present, memory representing the past and desire, the drive for a future. Underneath these mirrored imageries lie many stories about limits, freedom and self-perception.
Shifting Gaze is commissioned by Georgetown Business Improvement District, and sponsored by Jamestown Properties and Georgetown Park with the support of Spain Arts and Culture.
