The project: Overvloed will become a video installation that talks about our inability to change the inequality of wealth and privilege. The film is a symbol of the loss of that wealth and privilege. Wealth without empathy is self destructive. The film will be projected on a big vertical screen in a repetitive loop with a score.
The artist: Simone Bennett is a filmmaker and visual artist based in Amsterdam. She makes films, music videos, drawings and works with photography. After graduating from the audio visual art department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, she worked as an artist / filmmaker in Berlin for several years, before returning to Amsterdam.
