An exploration of the complicated demonic Biblical figure of Lilith.
Hartung explores the potential of the moving image. He deconstructs and analyzes cultural narratives through collage, assemblage and cinematic tricks. Hartung’s main motivation in this series is his interest in demons, which represent a self-contradiction and a dimorphic appearance. Lilith is one of these characters, as she plays many different roles: in the sages of the Mishna and the Talmud and in the Zohar she is described as a demon, and according to late Jewish mythology she is Adam’s first wife. Today, many see her as a feminist symbol.
