Samuel And I, Simon And I and Ladybirds, Miranda Whall, Animation, Colour, Sound, 2, 3 and 4 min, UK, 2006/05 Miranda Whall’s three works Samuel and I, Simon and I and Ladybirds, all depict a series of self- portraits engaged in autoerotic activity, whilst seemingly unaware of a series of large birds, fish and cats that float, perch or mull around the white background that surrounds them. Whall’s animations defamiliarise our relation to watching these intimate moments by juxtaposing knowingly quaint watercolour renderings of scenes of female masturbation with wildlife. Miranda Whall recently exhibited work at the Gimpel Fils Gallery, London, the Skol Gallery, Montreal, the Vane Gallery, Newcastle, the Schuster Gallery, Berlin and at the Museu de Arte Moderna, São Paulo. She was born in the United Kingdom and lives and works in Aberystwyth. DVD 2 includes the featurette 'Interview with Miranda Whall' with Marilyn Allen and Tracey Warr, directed by Gordon Shrigley.
