DAD ART: LOVE/GRIEF/DEATH:DESCRIPTION

DAD  ART:  LOVE/ DEATH/  GRIEF;  DESCRIPTION

DAD  ART  is a two and half hour video-performance collaborative  experience and interaction with collaborators and audiences. The intention is to allow all present to study life/death/grief with support . Communal  grief. 

WHAT HAPPENS: 
A video Montano and her father collaborated on for 7 years. Four of them before his stroke. After his stroke, I continued filming so that I could "hide" behind the camera... I could not always "face" his failing health as  we cared for him at  home for 3 years. The camera became a mask. 
Actions of collaborators which provide an  nteractive-atmosphere which makes it easier for all of us to deal with death.
