About

Filmed on location in Harlem, New York, and in Claude Monet’s historic gardens in Giverny, France, THE GIVERNY SUITE is a multi-textured cinematic poem that meditates on the safety and bodily autonomy of Black women. Ja’Tovia Gary (b. 1984, Dallas) unleashes an arsenal of techniques and materials, including direct animation on archival 16mm film, woman-on-the-street interviews, and montage editing, to explore the creative virtuosity of Black femme performance figures while interrogating the histories of those bodies as spaces of forced labor and commodified production.

Hammer Projects: Ja’Tovia Gary is organized by Erin Christovale, associate curator, with Vanessa Arizmendi, curatorial assistant.
