GAZE IN BATTLE (a performative dissection of my experience in Israel)

Video Screening with Ayla Pierrot Arendt (Frankfurt)

Join us for a screening of GAZE IN BATTLE, a work by international artist-in-residence Ayla Pierrot Arendt, a filmic work based on her experiences in Israel. The screening will be followed by a discussion and open studio.

“The perfect sunset. A circling helicopter. The white cone of light seeks the beach and brushes me hard. But I don’t feel fear. It’s so cinematic. I’m neither on stage nor behind the camera. My position is in between. I’m lying on my back on the street. I ask to be filmed. I want to look at me lying there. It’s like a dream. The blue of the sky turns black. Images emerge, paintings come to life. The horses are freed.”

– Ayla Pierrot Arendt
