Still from Postcards from Cuba, Lily Keal, 2010
Lily Keal graduated from Goldsmiths College with a BA Art Practice in 2010. Her work sets out to map a string of historical events against the smallest gestures of the individual. A fight with a boyfriend or round of golf can lead to an encounter with the Armenian genocide or an exodus from Cuba. While often playing in the realm of political debate her obscure take on documentary film mystifies and obfuscates teasing out the slippages between percieved history and lived moments.
