> DESCRIPTION

Artist Wes Kline will be recreating the unproduced film “Minotaur” by the mid-century avant garde filmmaker Hans Richter, using Project 924 as a collage space for re-imagining the film as a series of performative vignettes and architectural photographic archives strewn around the exhibition space. Kline produces a series of structures, video vignettes, photographs, archives, drawings, and performances that collapse the modernist figure of the “Minotaur” (a favorite of the Surrealists, Picasso, and many others) into a series of participatory moments. Instead of the fragmented figure of the Minotaur in a labyrinth, the viewer will encounter an opportunity to “repair,” “archive,” or “restructure” the Minotaur as a site of exchange and production. The title MINOTAUROCRACY humorously alludes to this ‘production,’ recalling the image of the Minotaur as not a fragment, but as a plurality.
