Tomorrow Recession Art will be holding a video screening entitled "Facts and Fictions in Film". For one night only please come enjoy the work of Sarah Maxfield, Gregg Evans, Jordan Rathus and Joe Gutowski.
In and Out of Uniform, Sarah Maxfield
Originally presented as a live event at the Museum of Arts and Design, In and out of Uniform is an improvisational score by Sarah Maxfield, which investigates the histories contained by the body in uniform. This video version of the piece was created from archival footage of the live performance, edited by Maya Ciarrocchi. Performers interpreting the score in this iteration include Jodi Bender, Laurie Berg, Peggy Cheng, Rebecca Davis, Carolyn Hall, Aaron Mattocks, Tara O’Con, Jessica Ray, Anna Sperber, Jillian Sweeney, Maggie Thom, David Thomson, Arturo Vidich, Emily Wexler, and Enrico D. Wey.
Coye and I, Extended, Gregg Evans
The piece deals with issues of desire within portraiture, taking a fleeting interaction between photographer and subject and extending it to create an experience somewhere between motion and stasis, dominance and submission. Gregg Evans is a photographer based in Chicago, IL. He holds an MFA in Photography from Columbia College Chicago, and a BFA in Photography from S.U.N.Y. Purchase. He likes My Bloody Valentine, the new Justin Timberlake record, and Italian ices in the summer.
Introduction and Landscape, Jordan Rathus
These short and distinct filmed performances capture Rathus' exploration of the triangulation of self, nature, and camera. These works were created during her 2012 residency at Ox-Bow. Jordan Rathus’ videos navigate the spaces between fact and fiction and humor and drama. By re-contextualizing popular moving image formats such as narrative film and reality television, she explores the complexities of capturing and creating realities in relation to the construction of on-camera identities.
OFFPEAK, Joe Gutowski
Gutwoski's video work is an attempt to uncover the duality of objects that exist in the daily experience of life. The scenes that inspire him are rooted in real world experience. He photographs events and through the process of editing, along with the application of digital software, he explores the alternative reality that best expresses his aesthetical point of view."
