Ellis Faas: “A Family Affair”
December 11, 2011
“As a late teenager, I visited the Tate Gallery in London and was blown away by a Francis Bacon triptych. It made a great impression on me because of the use of colour – it was unnerving and stunningly beautiful at the same time. Bacon inspired many experiments I did over the years. I now think it has become something of my own and hasn’t much to do with Bacon any more.”
The short film is entitled “A Family Affair” because Ellis shot the film in her own home using her brothers face as the canvas, and her daughter Flavia composed and recorded the accompanying music.
