Video Art Screening
Brooklyn, NY – January 8, 2013
Trestle Gallery is happy to announce its first event dedicated solely to video art. The screening will include a series of short pieces by nine U.S. and international artists, addressing theses such as history, memory, everyday life, personal identity, and relationships with nature and technology will be presented. These subjects are explored with a variety of technical approaches, including staging and scripting a scene, documenting the outside world, manipulating digital material, and animation.
Alexandra Busgang’s work concerns the journey of the everyday. Her video The Point at Which the Skin Gathers explores the psychological and environmental consequences of a world caught in a continuous stream of information.
David Baumflek’s Snow is a meditation on how history intrudes upon memory, refracting and complicating the meaning of the everyday. This is the first in a series of video works entitled Warpiece, an exploration of how the last decade of war in America has affected mind, memory and daily experience.
In Equal/Unequal, Catherine Del Buono uses hand-drawn animation and humor to comment on plastic surgery
and the inequality that results when women become objects of desire.
Through the collection of video and data, Matt Frieburghaus translates sensory experiences into visual and auditory moments. The landscape in his video Evading Pings progressively becomes increasingly digital as times goes on.
April D. Friges’s 16mm film Goodbye Blue Monday is a recorded performance intending to index the mark of post industrialization upon the American landscape.
With Matame a mordidas, Ropela, and Salud, Robert Gallegos examines his personal struggle with cultural identity. The works use acts of endurance to question a stereotype’s ability to represent authenticity.
Through video portraiture and landscape, Andréanne Michon’s explores the expression of human experience. Her work reflects the human ability to inhabit interior and exterior spaces, both physically and psychically.
Jonathan Rajewski’s silent video 0% manipulates footage from four security cameras in order to reveal the absurdity of society’s complacent relationship with surveillance.
Jia Wu’s Chicken boy is a modern day metaphor for the journey of the lonely self to find peace with one's identity. The film is highly influenced by Chinese folk dancing and references many famous moments in dance film from a span of over 60 years.
