Oenanthe is a companion piece to Oriana, and part of the series of works that are related to Monique Wittig’s writing. These two 16mm films were shot just a few minutes from Dannemarie, where she grew up, during a time spent in residence at Crac-Alsace. Originally structured as a part of Oriana in 2020, shooting in Alsace had to be postponed until 2022, when the pandemic had subsided. 

Oriana [single-channel]

Single-channel, hd video, 78 minutes

Oriana is based on feminist writer Monique Wittig’s novel Les Guérillères from 1969. Santiago Muñoz’s free and procedural reinterpretation of Les Guérillères transposes Wittig’s remarkable linguistic inventions into an equally unconventional filmic structure. In the work, a band of militant feminists – mostly close collaborators and acquaintances of Santiago Muñoz – are invited to inhabit an undefined space-time proposed by the artist.
