Five Production Company Logos in 3D at Dianne Tanzer Gallery + projects

  • Location:
    Dianne Tanzer Gallery + projects, 108-110 Gertrude St, Fitzroy, Melbourne, Victoria, AU

Emile Zile’s Five Production Company Logos In 3D presents an
imaginary ‘real man’ behind these grandiose charades born of
selfimportant declaration. Just as design company CEOs probably come in
their pants when they look at their Maya-rendered fonts casting shadows
on planets, so are Emile’s hands ‘working magic’ as he performs aerial
jack-offs synchronised to Adam Milburn’s gilded melodic refrains. His
hysterical hand movements hilariously replicate the excessive overload
of those corporate logos which move around like Jane Fonda doing Zumba
on crack. Best of all, it simply looks like Emile is masturbating as if
he uses some amazing technique to whack a super load into our faces.
Which is exactly what the proud designers of those gleaming chromed
star-cruiser logo-ships imagine they’re doing. And a grand tradition it
is, for what is Coke’s ‘dynamic ribbon’ but the allusion to a frothy
foaming cum shot.
- Philip Brophy, January 2011 philipbrophy.com
Performed to audio created in the guise of fictional cinematic intro
sequences, here 3D modeling is reduced to hand movements. Constructed
spontaneous gestures and painterly hand motions, emerging and fading in
short-lived blooms against the unadorned white walls of an assumed
gallery medium. Though gestural hand motion implies stroke, the piece
also mines the history of the video format as a medium for effects,
motioning toward cursor or hardware driven art-forms. Paint without
paint. The online video format sublimated against itself - given form
against the absence of overt post-production.
