Idea Code 13384

Daniela Comani uses a range of media, such as video, photographs and drawings to express the détournement typical to her body of work. In this case, she turns her subversion on classic films, compiling a list of 100 films widely regarded as cinema masterpieces, illustrated by posters from each. But something is different: gender assignments are reversed, both in title and image. Suddenly, we are confronted with “The Woman Who Fell to Earth”, “The Blues Sisters” and “My Fair Lord”, or a moustached Catherine Deneuve and lipstick-smeared Clint Eastwood. Film narratives are reconsidered along gender lines, as Comani’s strategy upends the role of women in film history.
