»Now, they are coming together.« (Nina Yuen)
Off-screen we hear antlers crashing against each other: two deer are fighting. On-screen we see the film-maker’s hands recreating and describing the scene with two ferns, two leaves, two daisies and other material. Poetically, personally and comically – this is how Nina Yuen links language and her visually minimalist images in their relationship to nature.
During the festival Lea will also be shown on the website of the Dortmund Hartware MedienKunstVerein.
Nina Yuen holds an MFA from Bard College and a BA from Harvard University. She completed a residency at the Rijksakademie, Amsterdam in 2010. Yuen merges the personal and the universal in her videos. Her work has been part of numerous group exhibitions and shown in art institutions in Amsterdam, New York and Oslo and at film festivals, such as the New Media Festival in Seoul and the Rotterdam Film Festival.
