Snow White, 2001
Two projector video installation, 9'
South African artist Berni Searle continues her exploration of what one might call the incredible weightiness of color.

In »Snow White«, a video installation that ironically evokes the fairy tale of the same name, Searle whose ancestry spans three continents, metaphorically takes the audience through a cycle of visibility and erasure reminiscent of experiences under the ideological constructs of apartheid.
