NEW WORKS SALON XXXI: Brookbank, Cannizzaro, Ciummo, Flowers, Hahn, Monahan, Valencia
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 8PM
The New Works Salons series is a casual forum for the presentation and discussion of new works in film, video, sound, and performance, with local and visiting artists in-person to introduce their work. John Cannizzaro will show Dodecahedron, a light-hearted primer on image making. Using three 16mm film projectors and a separate sound source, this film “happening” explores the multi-layered process of capturing images. This film was commissioned by EPFC on our 12th anniversary! Reza Monahan will show Gravely Mistaken Identities, a modified piece taken from a multi-media installation installed last August at Monte Vista Projects. Unfolding as a conversation between operatives of time and place, this film utilizes a charged “discussion” to pull movement from degrees of stillness while ushering stillness back into forms of hyper-active movement. Olivia Ciummo will show her work On The Evening: between the sky and ground is an anxious state of affairs—a tropical nighttime landscape, re-photographed historical sites, political boundaries and the elasticity of a dream state. Also on the program: Karissa Hahn will show a new series of short works made on Super 8, including 1_ _ _ _1, 1_ /\ _ _1, along with a video piece titled Chipping Off, too, Ursula Brookbank will perform Marguritte: A Demonstration for overheard projector, 16mm film, and cake, and we’ll have recent Super 8 films by Pablo Valencia and by New York based artist Marquita Flowers.
