Peggy Ahwesh : The Third Body

video program by Peggy Ahwesh

A program of short experimental videos that re-work outtakes, tourist video, videogame play, found footage and home movies in an effort to unpack the joys and sorrows embedded in our childhood memories, our archives and our attachment to objects.

‘It’s a place of memory and of forgetting —where perhaps only a cinematic map of objects will help the individual find his or her way out of their own psychic labyrinth.’

Aptly described as a bricoleur, Peggy Ahwesh makes work that elaborates on the aesthetics of American avant-garde film in an investigation of cultural identity and modes of female subjectivity with a variety of formal approaches. Find her on the web at Senses of Cinema- Great Directors Critical Database, World Picture Journal and the Brooklyn Museum’s Elizabeth Sackler Center for Feminist Art.
