Where Is Eva Hipsey?


Where Is Eva Hipsey?




CATALOGUE TEXT
An elderly lady pursues her audiophile obsessions. When she is absent she records the sound of her house to listen to it later. A life of accidental and environmental sounds, collected on countless C60 cassettes. Orla McHardy’s poetic collage portrait of negative film, photos, dried flowers, animation sequences and sounds not only has a big heart for Eva Hipsey. It also reveals a passion for amateur recordings and their flaws, which keep generating secrets.

André Eckardt
