About this Event
Yuliya Lanina is an interdisciplinary artist whose work exists at the intersection of visual art, performance and technological innovation. She creates alternate realities in her works—ones based on trauma, sexuality, loss and identity. A secular Jew of Ukrainian descent who was born and raised in Moscow, Lanina arrived in New York in 1990 as a political refugee. There, she established herself as a pioneering artist on the cutting edge by combining digital technologies with handmade media.
Gefilte Fish, a short stop motion animation based on Lanina’s ink hand drawings, is about intergenerational trauma stemming from the genocidal killing of half of her father’s family during WWII. The animation examines the societal and personal silencing of truth which perpetuates the cycle of abuse.
A screening and discussion of her film will be on February 20 at 5:00pm in Dicke Hall 108, followed by a reception. This event is sponsored by the Department of Art and Art History and the Humanities Collective.
Viewer discretion is advised.
