Jenny Marketou, Are You Happy Now, 2012-2013
Jenny Marketou is a Greek/American artist. The work is rooted in histories of experimental film, animation and ethnography. The video is a sensuous, polyvocal montage of people and places, real and artificial worlds, language and sound. She uses her own sound scores or field recordings, as well as footage from broadcast sources to upend the progressive linearity of conventional storytelling in a move toward a narrative disorder and disruption. She does this by surfacing various historical moments within more contemporary ones and by mixing a variety of montage techniques venturing into narratives of destruction but also of hope. Curated by Sania Papa, Greece
