Description

The Woman With Fifteen Legs tells the true story of George Harrison’s secret daughter. This sweet and sour melodrama is accompanied by seemingly arbitrary yet unbearably seductive images that draw and reject the viewer back and forth from the twisted tale. This is the story of Elizabeth Knupp, a hard working woman that hides fifteen legs in her trousers. Determined to find the reason to the phenomena, Elizabeth Knupp finds herself confronting with a peaceful old woman named Dorothy Strauss. The Woman With Fifteen Legs is an ultimate cliff hanger made of 40 illustrated pages.

Keren Cytter creates films, video installations, and drawings, representing social realities through experimental modes of storytelling. Characterised by a non-linear, cyclical logic Cytter’s films consist of multiple layers of images, conversation, monologue and narration systematically composed to undermine linguistic conventions and traditional interpretation schemata. Recalling amateur home movies and video diaries, the artist’s films depict intensified scenes drawn from everyday life in which the overwhelmingly artificial nature of the situations portrayed is echoed by the very means of their production
