In 1974 Lamelas came to Los Angeles to shoot his movie “The Desert People,” a film poised  provocatively between the end of an art-based structuralist cinema and the arrival of  “Sundance” and the new genre of “independent” film. The artist moved to this city more or less  ermanently in 1976 and soon after embarked on a long-running collaboration with  Hildegarde Duane. The resulting series of short video productions—featuring both artists as  the actors, writers and directors— begins with “The Dictator” (1978) and culminates most  recently with “Apple Life” (2009), receiving its U.S. premier as part of this exhibition.

Consistent with their earliest efforts together, “Apple Life” by Hildegarde Duane and David  Lamelas, explores the dreams and myths of modern living while wickedly subverting the  standard media tropes by which such stories are told.
