Filmed at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh, The Wake explores issues of life and death, imprisonment and freedom, and sleep and dynamic reawakening. For this video, Dana Levy released one hundred monarch butterflies and filmed them among the museum’s specimen drawers, cases, and cabinets, creating a haunting tension between the living and the dead. (5 mins., HD video)

Born in Tel Aviv, Levy lives and works in New York. In her video and photographic work, she explores social, political, and historical issues while dealing with memory, identity, and the relationship between the wild and the man-made. She received her BA from the Camberwell College of Art, London, UK (1997), and completed postgraduate work in Electronic Imaging at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee, Scotland (1998).

This short concludes our series of Box programs that complement Shimon Attie’s MetroPAL.IS. on view in our galleries through August 4.
