New York based filmmaker and artist Lisa Oppenheim continues her exploration of the relationship between process and subject in film. Literalising the observation that film doubles its subjects as well as their celluloid manifestations, she presents in Double a program of double 16mm projections including films by Nashashibi/Skaer, Ursula Mayer, and herself. The screening will be followed by a conversation between Lisa Oppenheim and Lisa Le Feuvre, Head of Sculpture Studies at the Henry Moore Institute.
