A Story Of Heartbreak
A Story of Heartbreak is a collaboration of image and soundtrack in the form of a film in which Grace Slater recreates and fictionalizes her own heartbreak, by creating tableau images that use the colour red in an obvious way to imply a narrative of love and grief. The images are paired with clips from classical music, each song written about love, grief and loss. The dramatic and theatrical soundtrack triggers an emotional response from the audience. The work plays with the idea of the cliché and the visual language of storytelling. Dead roses, spilt wine and Beethoven are all used to create an easily recognizable story of a young woman dealing with the ending of a relationship.
