square Amanda Coogan: Long Now

A documentary exploring the importance of time and duration through Amanda Coogan, the Dublin-born performance artist who has been a close student and collaborator with Marina Abramovic throughout her career. Filmed during a gruelling six-week exhibition at Ireland’s prestigious RHA Gallery, the hour-long documentary follows the artist as she prepares for and performs daily for six hours a day, five days a week.

Capturing what was the gallery’s most successful and visited show in its 187-year history, the film weaves together the beautiful live performances with Coogan’s off-screen reflections on the physical and emotional demands of her art and why her Deaf family background and Sign Language in particular is often the inspiration for a movement or performance.
