Necromancer (2020 version replacing The World of Jule Eisenbud) 3 minutes (monitor)
The second film of the series begins with a sight gag: the first in a series of delightful absurdities appropriate to the vaudevillian turn in the artist’s work. The narrative charts Seers’ Aunty Barbara who worked in Blackpool as a ventriloquist and Seers’ own performance as a ventriloquist with a number of dummies that photograph from their automated mouths.
The Projectionist (2020 version replacing intermission) 3 minutes (monitor)
The third film witnesses Seers' journey unfold towards becoming a performance artist. She talks intimately of her inability to speak until the age of 8 and of her photographic memory and ruminates on the post colonial trauma that pervades the islands history and how that is embodied.
