Zummertapez: Lilli Carré
Sunday, August 21st

The Zummertapez screening series invites artists to create a video mixtape that combines excerpts of their own work with material that inspires or influences them. Launched by Alexander Stewart and Andy Roche in 2007, the goal is to produce a more sociable and engaging artist talk.
Roots & Culture concludes the 2011 Zummertapez series with a mixtape by Chicago artist Lilli Carré. In her comics and animation work, Carré uses forms that are both experimental and charmingly approachable as she blends existential crises with bold graphic style and daring narrative methods. While aesthetically reminiscent of American studio cartoons of the 20’s and 30’s, her films focus on darker themes of loss, death and misplaced memory, but maintain a light touch and quick wit throughout. For her Zummertapez screening, Carré will be including selections of her own work in combination with clips from classic studio animation, 90’s computer adventure games, feature films, TV commercials starring her family, and experimental animation.
