Dana Berman Duff: Short Films

Dana Berman Duff: Short Films

“Introducing a shifting textural temporality… the films of the Catalogue series ask us to consider where and how we locate ourselves within the fictions of the things that surround us.”
Deborah de Boer, Director, Antimatter Film Festival

Dana Berman Duff has long been a vital force in Los Angeles’ media arts. Astonishing in her versatility, Duff moves fluidly between Super 8mm and 16mm film, video, multi-channel installation, photography, drawing, and sculpture. Regardless of the medium, Duff’s work is infused with her subtle wit, tactile delight, and deeply reflective conceptual structure. This program includes selections from the Catalogue Series, in which fantasy tableaux and objects from the pages of a designer furniture knock-off catalogue are reworked into contemplations on the control andselling of desire. Duff’s art is in collections of The Museum of Modern Art and New Museum of Contemporary Art, and her films have shown in the Toronto, Rotterdam, Edinburgh, and other international film festivals.
