The suppliant

2010, 5’, Έγχρ./Color, Με ήχο/Sound, 16mm Director: Robert Beavers

Robert Beavers’s The suppliant is an exquisitely wrought, five-minute portrait, both of the small statue of the title and of the artist/friend in whose apartment it resides. [...] Without a single shot of the apartment’s occupant, images and sounds carve a portrait of a solitary life comforted by art. (Tony Pipolo, Artforum)
