The Lady and The Chair

"The Lady and The Chair" is a symbolic short film in the form of still images rather than moving images.

This story is about carrying our burdens around to find the perfect place to set it down.

In these photographs are myself and a chair photographed in the mayor's house in Orquevaux, France during my 4 weeks long residency with the Chateau D'Orquevaux in November of 2022.

Although it is a self-portrait, I represent anyone else that relates to the symbolism of this story.

The chair represents any and all burdens and I represent the self.

The story begins with the chair appearing in the front yard. After briefly inspecting it, I begin to wander around with it to find the perfect place to leave it.

In the end of the series, I place the chair with the garments I was wearing on the window frame to symbolize it being boxed in, framed, however you want to say it.

I want to display this short film as a solo exhibition with a sculpture that I plan to complete along with the film in book form.

I will be printing all 25 images in large format and only making an edition of 7 of some.

As I complete the project in its entirety in preparations for a show, please enjoy these select six images from the entire series.
