The artist will discuss an in-progress video project in a multimedia presentation in which she will perform excerpts of dialogues using live and pre-recorded sound. She will discuss where she gets ideas (such as for costumes and props), show images that depict influences, and reveal how her students actually participate in the making of the project (without knowing). Lequin’s multidisciplinary practice interweaves personal history with fictionalized events and circumstances in a manner that constantly blurs the line between the artist as individual and the artist as self-consciously constructed persona.
