DOUBLE TAKE:

THE ART OF ELIZABETH KING

About the Film

Double Take: The Art of Elizabeth King engages the viewer in the work of sculptor and stop-action animator Elizabeth King, who embarks on each new project by posing a single question to herself: “How/Can this be physically done?” Tracing King’s creative flow, curiosity and obsessive drive to solve the inevitable series of artistic and technical problems that arise in creating her disconcerting sculptures and animations, balanced between realism and surrealism, the film explores King’s interest in automatons and puppetry, and the role of gesture and the body in her work.
