Description

“Odessa Staircase Redux” is a kind of flipbook revisiting the well-known film sequence from Sergei Eisenstein’s “Battleship Potemkin.” The first frame of every cut is drawn in black ink by hand. The ensuing series of 158 ink drawings is organized to form a typology of camera angles and subject matter that in turn creates a new animation of the scene in the mind of the viewer.

The work’s paired down minimalist aesthetic helps to streamline Ezawa’s focus on the changing role of the camera and its effect on the viewer’s reception.
