Over the course of his Session, Satterwhite will create a 3D animated video using drawing, CG animation, and improvised and mediated performance. A continuation of The Matriarch’s Rhapsody, the series will continue to employ dance, performance, drawing, video and photos from public and private archives, combining these forms into new possibilities for generating narrative.
Thus far, videos in the series The Matriarch’s Rhapsody, have exclusively employed the artists’ own body as a sole character. For Grey Lines, the artist will invite strangers to perform a series of actions based on a selection of 300 graphite line drawings and become part of the fabric of the larger work. Satterwhite will shoot visitors to the space in a green screen lab as well as offsite on the streets of Soho. He will edit the footage at Recess as he produces it. The result will be new video work that maps the overlapping visual stories told by the artist, his mother, and their audiences.
