Lyra Hill: Three Performances

2014-16, Lyra Hill, USA, ca. 60 min.

Show Times

  • Thu, Apr 21st 6:00pm

Comics artist and filmmaker Lyra Hill (BFA 2011) produces spectacular performances that mix psychedelia with fantastic tales of self-discovery, the body, and the mysteries of nature. She uses multiple film projectors, looping audio effects, and pulsating hand-drawn images to create super-sensory environments of light, color, and sound. For this event she will present three pieces, including Breathe With Cube (2015), a "comedy trance" featuring an anaglyphic 3D cube that pulsates, grows, and splits in two; Cat Tongue (2014), a tale of sexual exploration and heavy machinery; and a new piece, created especially for the Gene Siskel Film Center, that meditates on "the end" with drawings animated by three alternating slide projectors.

APRIL 21: Lyra Hill will be present for audience discussion.
