In The Gloom

By Galia Eibenschutz

Artist movie

Initiation, Production


The time when the first convents and churches of the Middle Ages were built coincides with a moment of separation between the intuitive and the rational, the feminine and the masculine. With this fact, moral, social and fascial structures were established to mold and alienate the feminine part of the human being. A performance inspired by the movie Madre Juana de los Ángeles by Jerzy Kawalerowicz.

“In The Gloom” is an experimental video documentation of a performance by the artist Galia Eibenschutz.

The project also culminates in the publication of a book.
