Space is the Place: Alternative Visions
Tonight we present a selection of recent films and videos that deal with place, in some cases through straightforward observation, and in others, through abstraction or mediated representations. At the center of the program, T. Marie’s Optra Field VII-IX is the exception. This mesmerizing triptych was created by manipulating pixels on a grid. Chris Kennedy’s 349 (for Sol LeWitt) is a digitally animated version of LeWitt’s geometric Wall Drawing #349, while Mark Lewis’s Black Mirror in the National Gallery engages with early Dutch paintings. Ben Rivers’s Sack Barrow pays homage to an electroplating factory; Kevin Jerome Everson’s Chevelle records two cars being crushed. Sophie Michael’s lovely abstract 99 Clerkenwell Road was shot in an empty shop, while Blake Williams’s Coorow-Latham Road records a journey down an Australian rural road. Eriko
Sonoda animates her room in Space is the Place. John Price’s widescreen Sea Series #10 meditates on the recent Japanese disaster.
