With Heartfelt Gratitude For The Painless Treatment
Date: 03 May - 07 June, 2008
Location: Picture This Atelier, Bristol, UK
Synopsis:With Heartfelt Gratitude for the Painless Treatment was presented as three screen projections accompanied by a cabinet display of family crystal dish heirlooms that are inherent to the narrative of the film.
Audience members could sit on 1930's furniture, some taken from the set of the film, while between screenings, art deco table lamps slowly came on, providing light in the space and illuminating the installation that the audience was part of.
The obvious constructed set of both the film and the installation underline the fictional nature of the work while the archival material plays against this questioning.
Anya Lewin was commissioned to make With Heartfelt Gratitude for the Painless Treatment as part of our Small Wonders scheme 2008.
Our Small Wonders professional development scheme offered artists the mentoring support and technical resources needed for making film and video
