Think about Marilyn Monroe, Amy Winehouse and Sylvia Plath. Think about how we experience these women today. We know these women through the memories of people they met and the stories they share.
Vestige is based on the life of a fictional celebrity named Livia. Her memory is also kept alive in the stories told by those who knew her. With each of their stories painting a different version of Livia, Vestige exposes the fact that we have very little control of the narratives of our lives once we’ve passed.
Touching on celebrity culture, gossip, lies and our obsession with wanting to know those in the limelight, Vestige could not be more timely as we reflect on the high profile losses of 2016.
