Director | Long Before, High Above | Part III: Imitating Life

Long Before, High Above is an attempt at understanding where artistic creation takes its inspiration from. It explores the impact of nostalgia and the influence of the past on artistic practice.

In the third part, Imitating Life, sculptor Virgile Ittah opens her studio to us and shares intimate details about her practice and creation process. The artwork featured in the film is commissioned by Caitlin Prize and exhibited in Saatchi Gallery.
