Still Life – Lying Down Textiles

Grace Ndiritu

UK, 2007
5 minutes, Colour, Silent
Available formats: DVD / Digibeta tape / SD Digital file

… Still Life: Lying Down Textiles is one of the four videos that use West African textiles in a sensual and, at times, unnerving physical performance by the artist to camera. Ndiritu wraps, conceals and reveals her body, creating and controlling tensions within the fabric to provoke different emotional responses.
