Cecile & Marianna

HD Color VIdeo, 17'00", 2018

Cecile & Marianna is a video that traces the parallel narratives of two unrelated women, French Ceile Arnaud-Hartmann in Sydney and Chinese Marianna Liu in Hong Kong, who were suspected of being spies for the Soviets and the Chinese respectively, against the backdrop of the Vietnam War and the Cold War. Their stories were linked together by the artist's search for the traces of Australian music group The In People, who moved from Sydney to Hong Kong to take over The Den, the basement club at the Hilton Hotel, hong Kong.
