DISCOVER OUR EXECUTIVE SUPERIOR MAYA DEREN:

 

In our Torel Avantgarde, Maya Deren was represented as a creative artist, in an Executive Superior room, with balcony and city view.

The fabric used for the headboard of the double bed is in the same pattern as the Executive Royal Charlie Chaplin Room.

The shape of a film camera is represented in the circles of lamps, in the form of projectors, an allusion to cinema.

MEET THE ARTIST MAYA DEREN...

Eleanora Derenkowskaia was one of the most important experimental filmmakers and avant-garde business promoters in the 1940s and 1950s.

Maya Deren, as she was known, was also a choreographer, dancer, film theorist, poet, speaker, writer, and photographer.

She combined her interests in dance, Haitian Vodou and subjective psychology in a series of surreal short black and white films.

Deren creates continuous movement through discontinuous space, while abandoning established notions of physical space and time, with the ability to transform his vision into a stream of consciousness.

 

Some of his main works:

  • A Study in Choreography for Camera;
  • Meshes of the Afternoon;
  • Ritual in Transfigured Time;
  • Meditation on Violence.

 

Artistic movements: Video-dance and Experimental Cinema.
