Blackwater Ophelia
Adad Hannah, 2013

Blackwater Ophelia is a video-recorded tableau vivant inspired by the 1852 painting Ophelia by John Everett Millais. Adad, a New York born artist who now lives between Montreal and Vancouver has devoted his talents to a series called ‘stills’ over the past decade. These are videos that combine performance and photography with video clips. Take a moment to watch – what appears still, will soon subtly move.
