‘My Daughter’ is the very first film made by Marlene Dumas. Well-known for her paintings and drawings about ‘Helena’ the artist has made a touching vanitas art piece about her daughter innocently sleeping while the eye of the camera moves around in the sleeping room passing a skull on a table as a momento mori suggesting an unknown future. The dramatic slurring music of Ryuitchi Sakamoto gives the work an important second layer to the apparently motherly worries. KvG
