Lilith

Against a field of swaying and halting yellow vegetation, another processed field: the image of the eponymous subject (performed by painter Doris Cross) riles and emits unintelligibly to the viewer. Conjuring the mystical biblical character Lilith, Steina’s video layers both sound and image to produce an ever-shifting, frustrated presence. (1987, 9 minutes)
