Rineke Dijkstra, “Ruth Drawing Picasso,” Tate Liverpool, 2009.
1 channel HD video installation, 6.30 minutes.
16 March–19 June 2011
One of the two films in Rineke Dijkstra’s exhibition I See A Woman Crying shows a group of children from a primary school who interpret Picasso’s painting Weeping Woman from 1937. Together, the children devise stories about the woman in the image—how she feels, where she has been and where she is going. We never get to see the painting, but the children’s imagination triggers our own.
