Wash, 2011-12, a short film by French American artist Suzanne Husky.

Currently artist-in-residence at Nekatoenea, Hendaye, French American visual artist Suzanne Husky that has been living and practicing in the Bay Area and France since 2000. Her work sits between the age old perception of a broken original bond with “nature” to the blind exploitation of it as resource and tackles how humans engage with nature from prehistory to now.
The artist will be present.

With Nekatoenea, Hendaye.
