A large, painted, nude female figure is transported from the studio to a modern museum. She will be presented during the exhibition ‘WOMEN IN ART’. We follow the female figure on her journey through the outside world with all its noise and banalities. But is someone genuinely paying attention to her? The film is a playful metaphor for how patriarchy is still present in everything, in a handful of small moments on an ordinary day.
.
Watch A Day In The Life Of A Female Frame, a film directed by Ilke Paddenburg, in our #330 Shortcutz Amsterdam Session.
