EXHIBITION AND SCREENING

Le Petit Versailles
346 East Houston St. (at Ave. C)
Le Petit Versailles is pleased to have artist Roshanak Elmendorf share with us her animation and drawings for a day-long exhibition.
Roshanak Elmendorf was born in Tehran, Iran. In 1977 she came to the United States to pursue a career in science. Influenced by the social changes in Iran, she returned to the country in 1979. More than a decade after obtaining a medical degree from New York University in 1993, she developed an interest in painting and drawing. In 2005 she started her studies at art studio classes in New York and New Jersey. Searching for a juncture between poetry and art led her to the discovery of experimental film and moving image that would incorporate drawings, paintings, photography and film. She uses a combination of analog and digital animation, video processing and sound design to intervene with the source images.
Le Petit Versailles events are made possible by Allied Productions, Inc., Gardeners & Friends of LPV, GreenThumb/NYC Dept. of Parks, Materials for the Arts, and the NYC Dept. of Cultural Affairs. LPV Exhibitions are made possible with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
