the bathroom girl - City Hall, Wed 5:36 PM

“Stolen Moments is Yasmine Chatila’s love poem to New York. To capture these moments her artistic was as follows; while working exclusively at night, Chatila would find a well-situated New York City apartment with views of apartment interiors across the way. She would then set-up her telescopic and photographic equipment, position the camera pointing through a stranger’s window and patiently wait. As it was “true” surveillance the artist did not seek permission. However, through a labor intensive post-production process the artist obscures these intimate portraits, taking these documentary events into the realm of fiction and fantasy.”
