As a photographer, Anna Gaskell's work has mined literary and cinematic narratives from Alice in Wonderland to Grimms’ Fairy Tales to Frankenstein. In Erasers, her first major work in film, Gaskell draws from a tragic personal experience, the death of her mother in a car accident when the artist was only 12. In the film, a group of 12-year-old girls recount the story as told to them by Gaskell herself. Each girl retells the story as if it had happened to her personally, although some details get confused. (10 mins., 16mm transferred to video)

Anna Gaskell lives and works in New York. Over the past decade her photographs and works in film and video have been shown in galleries and museums around the world including Yvon Lambert Gallery, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami; the Menil Collection, Houston; White Cube, London; and the Castello di Rivoli, Turin, Italy. She received the Citibank Private Bank Photography Prize in 2000 and a Nancy Graves Foundation grant in 2002.
