The Dollhouse

For nearly a decade, The Dollhouse stood in a frozen field just off of highway #2 in the Canadian Prairies A match was lit and in a few breaths everything was lost.

Film notes

Time and place are forever bound to one another at ever-renewing points of intersection. A relationship both trapped in stasis, yet constantly devolving. When we decelerate this process momentarily, as we often do, we find an archive of sorts. And in this collection of memories we read the lines that can still be made out and leave with the story we find. What was lost, what was left behind?

'The Dollhouse' is an experimental, non-fiction piece documenting the decommissioning of Heather Benning's artwork, 'The Dollhouse’.
