Julie Béna. Anna & the Jester in Window of Opportunity
Catalogue of the exhibition

Part of The New Sanctuary, the Satellite Programme 12 devised by Laura Herman, Anna & the Jester in Window of Opportunity is published in conjunction with the exhibition of work by Julie Béna, which takes the form of an architectural tale.

In her animated film Anna & the Jester in Window of Opportunity (2019), Julie Béna relates the curious encounter between a series of characters both existing and imagined. A critique of the concept of transparency current in architecture and society, this exhibition has been conceived as a series of real and virtual layers, which create a space of opacity and indeterminacy.
This publication explores the principles and ideas that underpin these works through a conversation between Julie Béna and Laura Herman, together with an essay by Irene Sunwoo, an architectural historian and exhibition curator.
