Keeping Busy: An Inaccurate Survey
Zach Feuer Gallery, Newman Popiashvili and Participant Inc are pleased to present solo exhibitions of work by the pioneering video artist Michel Auder. This three-venue survey exhibition will coincide with a weeklong screening of The Feature (2008), directed by Michel Auder and Andrew Neel, at Anthology Film Archives in New York and a screening of Van’s Last Performance (1972) at Volume2 in Los Angeles.
A cinematic installation at Participant Inc will include feature-length works from the late 60s onward, presented as a large-scale projection with seating and sound, encouraging visitors to spend time with a rotating schedule of durational works including Keeping Busy, A Coupla White Faggots Sitting Around Talking, Chasing the Dragon, Cleopatra, and Chelsea Girls with Andy Warhol. As well, an installation of silent video loops throughout the gallery will serve as index of the range of works on view.
Michel Auder was born in Soissons, France and works in Brooklyn, NY. He has been working in video since the inception of the Sony Portapak in 1969. Recent exhibitions and screenings include the Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. His work was included in the 5th Berlin Biennial, the Athens Biennial, Kunsthalle, Basel, Switzerland and solo exhibitions at Cubitt in London and at Krabbesholm in Skive, Denmark. He will have a solo museum exhibition at Lunds Konsthall in Lund, Sweden this September 2010.
