A conceptual short film made for Andrew Merlino’s projection installation at Illuminate, The Arts Menagerie's first group exhibition held at Chan Andreassend Studio in Ponsonby, Auckland on Saturday 13 July 2013.
Starring Vikki Heijboer, sound recording by Janina Gaudin and Andrew Merlino.
A film by Andrew Merlino.
In keeping with the theme of Illuminate – exploring the question “Who are you?” and expressing the artist within as an illuminated artwork – Andrew chose to illuminate his artwork, a conceptual short film, with a digital projector. The concept of the film explores the temptation of escapism from reality. This is a thematic concern that underpins much of Andrew's filmmaking. He deliberately made the film in a conceptual yet impressionistic form so that it’s open to interpretation, as Andrew firmly believes all art should be.
