16mm, transfer DCP

Filmed in 16mm just after the lockdown caused by COVID-19, Flowers Blooming in our Throats is an intimate, poetic portrait of the fragile balances that govern everyday life in a domestic setting. The artist films a group of her friends in their own homes, performing various small actions in accordance with her instructions. Gestures remain symbolically ambiguous, expressing a kind of violence that is not immediately recognizable. A dialogue of gestures, made up of repeated visual sequences where time is marked by the spinning of a small toy top, as unstable and precarious as the balance of a relationship.

Eva Giolo

Eva Giolo is an audiovisual artist predominantly working with the moving image. Her work consists of cinematic poems that show a propensity to capture family stories, of her own or of another’s. Using documentary strategies, she paints film portraits and creates a window onto invisible, usually private, interior worlds. Her interest lies in capturing the everyday, the coming-into-being of language, filiation as transmission, learning and teaching as a labour of love.
