Possibly in Michigan
Two young women are pursued in a shopping mall by a cannibal. In a surreal suburban setting, victims become aggressors, the familiar becomes the fantastic. Possibly in Michigan intermixes horror and humour, sexuality and violence. Cecilia Condit’s feminist fairytales give a subversive twist to traditional Freudian metaphors and female representations.
Born in 1947, Condit studied sculpture at Philadelphia College of Art and photography at the Tyler School of Art, Temple University. Her work has been shown at festivals and museums all over the world, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York. She works with videos, super 8 film and found footage. Music and sing-song dialogues, autobiographical and archetypal references also play an important role in her films. Condit teaches film at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
