Film No. 48
Modern Archaeology: The Art of Catherine Shakespeare Lane
| 12’ 25” | 2024
digital video, stereo, colour

A studio visit with the artist and photographer Catherine Shakespeare Lane, who creates artworks out of discarded materials she comes across in her daily life, often combining these with her own photographs.  

In this short documentary CSL shows us around her home studio, discusses her working process, and the relationship (often satirical) her work has with artists such as Francis Bacon, Kurt Schwitters and Salvador Dali.
