Idiots
Animation | mov | black and white | 2'7'' | Ireland / United Kingdom | 2020
Idiots combines words and beats into an apoplectic symphony. It's language is raw and jagged, stuttering onto the screen into rants, shouts and screams. This film is angry on your behalf.
Michelle Deignan makes moving image, photographic and print works, for gallery exhibition, for cinema and for other screening contexts. With moving images she creates factual and fictional narratives that present alternative experiences and understandings of identity and place. These films often feature the triumphs and failures of protagonists struggling to be seen, remembered or heard as they fight for agency. Michelle's moving image work is distributed by LUX. She is one of a group of international women artists who collectively produce The Crown Letter, online participatory art project that began in April 2020.
