Zilla Leutenegger works with the combination video and drawing. The mix of these two media produces a "moving drawing." Her style, uncluttered and naïve, transforms these "video drawings" into installations that are infused with a poetic touch and a freshness that are the stuff of dreams, plunging us into a magic world. Leutenegger brings to video and digital technology the freedom of expression that springs from the art of drawing. Her digital animated films are profound reflections on the artist's condition and his or her place in the world. These films normally represent the artist herself exploring a range of personalities with the intention of shaking up the representations of the female stereotype. Version is pleased to present a new piece by Leutenegger called Torch.
