Going Nowhere Fast
Phone Booth Gallery is proud to present “Going Nowhere Fast,” an exhibition of new video work by Long Beach artist Jeremy Eichenbaum. The online exhibit will run from September 6 to September 30, 2008, and the opening party will be held at Basswerks on September 6 from 7-12pm. Basswerks is located at 5411 W Adams Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90016.
Eichenbaum’s latest video work represents a fixed reality in a world of constant change. In this work there is no stable environment. The surroundings have been fragmented and skewed to show an unending state of arrival and departure. This new work stems from the physical social environment that we all have experienced, and implores the viewer to relive this experience under the light of the artist’s own imagination.
The constructed realities Eichenbaum creates become a commentary on the ever changing fabricated urban habitat which surrounds us. By re-orchestrating and displacing such realities he is able to create his own tapestry of sights and sounds. “This is my contribution,” says Eichenbaum, “to blur the lines between space and time, to fluctuate perspective, to destabilize the foundation of a singular reality, and to place the viewer squarely on a platform of converging life rhythms.”
