Video Installation at FILET

As part of UrbanPhotoFest 2017 investigation into 'Cartographies' FILET is pleased to introduce Jacob Dwyer's video work DAT LIKWID LAND. After discovering a man’s notebook in a bus station the words inside it lead us from cemeteries to Cypress trees. As we float through a landscape built into a swamp, the characters we meet become coordinates on a cognitive map. Shot in New Orleans, DAT LIKWID LAND re-approaches the relationship between author John Kennedy Toole and the main character of his novel, A Confederacy of Dunces, as the creation of a fictional outsider to disrupt ones casual constellation of meanings and re-view the city in which he lived.

Film duration 30 minutes
