Rest Oration (El Greco), 2020
Video, 8m

Rest Oration (El Greco) imagines a fictitious restoration of a painting while giving it a life of its own. Produced during the pandemic period, while museums are closed to the public, the film suggests a time for broader restoration.

Part of the project Speaking in Tongues 2020, a performance-based project devised by Fine Art students of Central Saint Martins developed in a partnership with The National Gallery, London’s Learning & National Programmes.
