About the film:
King Lear in the Forest (KLIF) unravels the perceived and evolving identities of duoship G^2 as they traverse a metaphoric forest, generating a chimera of kinetically contemplative and visually enticing psychological territories. The work manifests both identity and post-identity, where the individual labels that are afforded or placed on either of them have the potential to become momentarily blurred with each other and the audience.
** Artist Beth Graczyk, of the artist duo G^2, will be in attendance. **
[G^2 (John Maria Gutierrez & Beth Graczyk), US, 2021, 66 min]
In May 2021, G^2 had a 2-week residency at The Center at West Park in NYC where they built a site-specific version of their on-going work King Lear in the Forest Part I & II. They worked with celebrated lighting designer Sarah Lurie, and three 12-foot original drawings created by visual artist Cristina De Miguel. The film, shot by Daniel Hess and edited by G^2, is the result of their 2-week exploration at The Center at West Park.
