American artist Shelly Silver has always displayed a fascination for the visible and the invisible, the act of watching and of being watched, the blurring of lines between fiction and reality. Her latest film work, A Strange New Beauty, takes us to the opulent homes of Silicon Valley, where human presence is felt but not seen and stories lurk within every corner and every wall. Here, Shelly uses video and sound to their full potential to convey an eerie atmosphere, as if the memories of the places – and the significance of the objects within – were being indirectly, often wordlessly, relayed to the viewer with tragic urgency.
