A love letter to death. A love letter to the moons. A love letter to fear.
Miami artist Jamilah Sabur pens these romantic memos as a trilogy of short films, all of which Dimensions Variable will screen in Miami Dade College’s Live Arts Lab will screen Saturday evening in connection with an exhibition of her work through August at Dimensions Variable, 300 NE 2nd Avenue, MDC Building 1, 3rd Floor.
The films, “Playing Possum” (2012), “Moon Tendon” (2015) and “Medical Gaze” (2013), use black-and-white film and original scores to achieve Sabur’s signature approach of “exploring dissonance, dislocation and the uncanny.”
Sabur was born in Saint Andrew Parish, Jamaica, and received degrees from University of California San Diego and Maryland Institute College of Art.
She now lives and works in Miami.
