Abstract:

"A compilation of Sadie Benning's video works produced between 1989 and 1998. Sadie Benning is a lesbian videomaker who began making videos when she was 15 years old using a Fisher-Price Pixelvision toy camera. Benning's early works were made in the privacy of her childhood bedroom, using scrawled and handwritten text from diary entries to record the thoughts and images that reveal the longings and complexities of a developing identity. Evoking in turn playful seduction and painful honesty, Benning's floating, close-up camera functions as a witness to her intimate diaristic revelations and as an accomplice in defining her evocative experimental form. Her work emerges from a place half-innocent and half-adult, with all the honesty, humor, and real desperation of a personality trapped and uncomfortable, just coming to self-awareness. Her more recent work moves beyond the Pixelvision camera into animation and film"--Http://www.vdb.org.
