Donna Verheijden - ‘Kiss the sky - Eye trick the I’ (2019, 18’)

An eye-catching essay on trompe-l’oeil, deception, privileges, temptations and apparent liberties. Behind the façade of public life we find the private life of the individual and its hidden agendas. We develop new skills to try our luck in the non-stop image and information flow. How to live in a post-privacy era?

After the screening of ‘Kiss the Sky - Eye Trick the I’, Donna Verheijden will show a selection of fragments from her archive. By the way of a neon world we get seduced to look differently, we go on a filosofical trip through a speculative inferno, after which we are treated on a lyrical ode to nitrate film.
