Dan Robert Lahiani | Renana Aldor

La Femme qui Cherche (2015) by Renana Aldor
An abstract journey in search of a hidden matriarchal figure, inspired by the artist's late grandmother Esther and her memories of Oran, her native city on the northwestern Mediterranean coast of Algeria. The viewer experiences the journey through passing along four miniature domestic spaces: The office, the bathroom, the kitchen and the living room.
The Orphan’s Gift (2017) by Dan R. Lahiani
The video piece confronts the structure of French language with the discovery of the modern tower of Jerusalem: Migdal Ha-ïr. The traumatic journey of a child during the Algerian War will make both entities transcend to a sacred level, through body movements, words, and introspective testimonies.
Studio 3 is an art project initiated by Dan Robert Lahiani, which includes screening and lectures dealing the field of moving image.
