- a Film
- by Sydney Southam
- Description (english) This film is an entirely new work that is haunted by the artists past. This work is the third in a series of films in which the artist explores themes of death, nostalgia, memory, post-memory and autobiography by trying to make sense of the suicide of her father. The family summer home where both the artist and her father grew up is the catalyst for these themes. The artist returned to this place, where she projected her film “Ice Cream” (2010), edited from 16mm family film footage, on to the buildings as a film within the film. Consisting of a guided tour by the artist, images of projections, and a heart wrenching voiceover by the artist’s sister, this film is a poignant exploration of how a person’s death can irrevocably change a place.
