Special evening with Carolee Schneemann and Marielle Nitoslawska

Off Screen in galleries NOW!
(On Screen and Live Images : April 12-21, 2012)


Marielle Nitoslawska's Breaking The Frame
documentary on groundbreaking artist Carolee Schneemann

The Images Festival is pleased to present a special gala preview screening of a documentary on internationally renowned feminist artist Carolee Schneemann entitled Breaking the Frame directed by Montreal-based Marielle Nitoslawska Wednesday April 4, 2012, 7 PM at The Royal located at 608 College Street in Toronto. This special evening will allow Toronto audiences a chance to get a sneak peek at Nitoslawska's much anticipated documentary, and to see the Director and subject Carolee Schneemann in in person.

*In addition to the screening and Q&A, Images will be offering tickets for a pre-screening VIP reception, where guests will enjoy reserved seating, refreshments, gift bags and hear remarks from the filmmaker.
All proceeds from this fundraising event support the 25th anniversary Images Festival, running April 12-21.

Marielle Nitoslawska's Breaking the Frame presents Schneemann's recollections and meditations on her life/work in order to pose the questions what is space, where is form, and how do we look? Nitoslawska's roving, insistently kinetic camera breaks open the frame(work) of art as discrete from the domestic sphere, revealing the magnificent mess of interiority and the interconnected holism of (the artist's) life. A meditation on space – physical, domestic, corporeal, and conceptual - Breaking the Frame provokes us to consider the edges and fractures where painting, writing, performance, and filmmaking are generated. Schneemann's multifaceted and transdisciplinary practice is reflected in the formal structure of the film, as Nitoslawska's spinning, haptic cinematography and montage foregrounds the multidimensionality of the work. Highlighting the gloss of photographic prints, the fibres of diary pages, and the lubricity of wet paint, for instance, brings the viewer to a textural and tactile contemplation that resonates with Schneemann's corporeal focus.
