That’s Me in the Picture, 2015
16 mm black and white film, sound, projector, trestle table
The artist projects a 16mm black and white film made in 1935, whose subject is the capture and murder of a gorilla by a group of tribal hunters in the African forest. Elisabetta Benassi cut the sequences showing the men, keeping just the almost abstract images in which the cameras fleetingly filmed the large, fast-moving and elusive gorilla in the forest.
