Visiting Dora Maar Visiting Dora

About the film

Visiting Dora Maar began as a study of Picasso’s portrait of Dora Maar he painted when they were lovers. Visually considered in the lens of the canonical art history portrait, Picasso created a portrait where her features seem to fracture, move about in space and time and become undone.

Ellen Wetmore managed to capture the master’s stroke and, using video images of herself, transformed Visiting Dora Maar into a moving image meditation about identity and self-assembly, “falling apart” and “pulling oneself together”.
