Extended Info

Inside Stacey Steers’s fully furnished Victorian dollhouse, miniature TVs play excerpts from Night Hunter, the artist’s meticulously crafted film composed of more than 4,000 collages she hand made. In the film, Steers has pitted early cinema star Lillian Gish against slithering worms, menacing snakes, and pulsating eggs—foes not found in the original silent film.
