The Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève is proud to welcome filmmaker Emmanuelle Antille for the launch of her book KD on Wednesday November 8, from 6pm.
Between a film diary and a manifesto on the creative process, this book is a wild and enchanting journey in Karen Dalton’s footsteps, the cult singer and her breathtaking voice, friend of Bob Dylan and forgotten muse of the ’60s. Written in parallel to the shooting of the film A Bright Light – Karen and the Process, the book offers an investigation combining texts, photographs, drawings and archives, at the crossroads of the worlds of art, music and cinema.
On the occasion of this launch evening, the artist will sign her book from 6pm. A screening of the feature film A Bright Light – Karen and the Process will then take place at Cinema Dynamo at 7pm.
Video artist and director, Emmanuelle Antille (born in 1972 in Lausanne) presents her work all over the world. In 2003, she represented Switzerland at the 50th Venice Biennale. In 2012, she directed Avanti, a feature film with Hanna Schygulla, Nina Meurisse and Miou-Miou. In 2018, her film A Bright Light – Karen and the Process had its world premiere at Visions du Réel festival in Nyon and received the award for best music documentary at the Dock of the Bay festival in San Sebastián in 2020.
