An installation created by Dorine van Meel
With an evolving multichannel soundtrack by Sami El-Enany
"In love at eight with Othello’s Desdemona. On our strawberry iMac I draw her massive soprano body tightly folded in a blue silk dress. No images of the play to be found anywhere, this was before the internet. And at bedtime I tell him dragons don’t exist, fear the real world instead."
Dorine van Meel is the fourth recipient of the Nina Stewart Artist Residency at the SLG. For her first solo show in a public gallery Van Meel presents a multi-channel installation exploring language and female subjectivity, through a soundtrack of two female narrators combined with alternating projections of digital imagery.
