Film: Marianna Simnett The Udder
Artist Marianna Simnett’s The Udder (2014, 16 min) is a narrative short film set on an English dairy farm. Using inventive storytelling and set devices, it explores how children develop psycho-sexually through play while also looking at milk production processes. Physical and perceived forces of corruption come to entangle these two threads.
The film is preceded by a conversation with the artist and Andrea Lissoni, curator of the Bruce Nauman exhibition.
