Lily Frame

Lily C. Frame was born and raised in Charleston, West Virginia. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Film Studies at the University of North Carolina of Wilmington in 2020. Although Frame has no formal art training, she dabbles in dance, photography, experimental filmmaking, film theory, film festival programming, collage-animation, scan art, performance art, and installation. Through the merging of dance and filmmaking, Frame creates subjective cinematic dances that aim at expressing her desire to be seen, heard, and felt. Her work revolves mostly around the here and the now, the human experience, the natural world, and contains stories that distill her life, autobiographically, and explore familial trauma. Curiously, her work investigates the recurring tendency in recent history to connect creativity with mental disability and illness.
