Lynn Kirby: Films & Installations


1151 Mission Street

San Francisco, CA, 94103

During the past 10 years Lynn Kirby has established herself as one of San Francisco’s important new voices in film. Her films present a subjective rather than authoritarian narrative that evoke a personal response to what we usually consider impersonal public events. This will be her first one-person show in San Francisco; it features film installations especially prepared for the Eye Gallery location as well as Across the Street, Three Voices, Deciduous, and her newest film, Sharon and the Birds on the Way to the Wedding. “Sharon and the Birds… is a film about conflicting perceptions of love, romance and marriage: the romantic and the pragmatic, the subjective experience and the cultural description, the fictional and the real. The character, Sharon, is narrator and the character of her own dramas.” (L.K.)
