THE PALACE GHOST


Year: 2018
Medium: Short Experimental Film; 1080p Digital Video
Size: 4 min 39 sec

An experimental film that I wrote, directed, and edited during my time at The Palace Artist's Residency program in Piotrowice Nyskie, Poland. The film follows The Palace's resident spirit Bianca as she stalks about the grounds at night, making snarky comments and giving critical feedback to the artists who have come to occupy her otherwise sleepy home. This film came about as a result of my interests in understanding the mythologies of Place and how we can explore the spiritual memories of geography. Using ghostly tropes as a tool to craft alternative histories, the film's site-specificity places the transience of an artist residency in contrast with those who already occupy the land.
