Cosmic Dramas


9 mins 30 secs

A short film documenting Liliane Lijn’s Cosmic Dramas exhibition at mima, Middlesbrough, Nov 2012 – Feb 2013.

From the early 1980s, Lijn began to develop a new female archetype, using a broad range of materials, media and new technologies, referencing mythological beings and merging them with images from both nature and industry. Bridging art and drama, Conjunction of Opposites [Woman of War & Lady of the Wild Things], The Bride and The Electric Bride are ‘the beginnings of a consciousness of spectacular feminist contemporary art’, Althea Greenan of the Women’s Art Library, Goldsmiths, University of London.

Directed and Produced by Liliane Lijn and Richard Wilding.
