Woman on the Run
Woman on The Run is a multimedia project exploring a fragmented narrative about a film noir heroine. The protagonist, a combination of femme fatales from 1950's and 1960's crime thrillers, is trying to escape her unwritten fate. A crime has taken place, and she is wanted for questioning. Clues are given about what might have happened and who the woman is; it is for the viewer to decide whether she the victim, or the perpetrator; a study in feminism or the manifestation of outdated perceptions of women?
Each time the exhibition is shown, it is set up in a completely different way. Additional elements, such as signs, billboards and videos, are added and/or changed to continually change and enhance the installation and story. Collaborator Idan Levin and I are presently developing a new version of Woman on the Run that will accompany the installation in an offsite location, called Woman on the Run Redux.
