Portrait of Geraldine

1998, 12:55 min, b&w, sound

In Portrait of Geraldine, the photographer Geraldine de Haugoubart comments on issues relating to national identity, religion and art making. De Haugoubart was born in Signy-L'Abbaye, France, and currently lives in New York. Throughout this elliptical conversation, still and moving images are interwoven alongside printed text and spoken language. This work investigates the terrain between language and image and makes use of audio and visual distancing devices.
