After thousands of years, the Mycenaean world still excludes a palpable, compelling presence - in the massive stones of Cyclopean fortification walls, in the curving embrace of a tholos tomb, even in the low stubble of a palace's foundation. In two of her experimental art films, Andrea Eis engages with the intense physicality and metaphorical power of these remains. The mute walls become catalysts for the imagination, inspiring meditations on the strength and vitality of two mythic women, Penelope and Clytemnestra, and allowing speculative visions to emerge from the stones.
