Om Leona Babette, Westwood, Los Angeles
Leona is a nightclub singer in Los Angeles. In the video she sits in her living room, sings short demonstrations of songs, and comments upon each of them. She alternates between performing and speaking about her life as both a private and a public person. She addresses the person behind the camera, the audience watching the video almost ‘becomes’ this person and it creates an intimate space between the viewer and the subject.
