Matthew Christensen: Cowboy, Clone, Dust


Dates:
Tue Oct 02, 2012 13:00 - Sat Oct 13, 2012

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America

Working in animation, and stop motion specifically, has a huge effect on the type of films I do. Before I did animation, when I was making dumb fun little live action films, I was making gag films. Short films with one stupid joke that's been done over and over again. Essentially Looney Tunes live action. Once I started doing animation I got really hard on myself. If I'm going to spend a ton of hours on something (hours being the key thing everyone thinks about when they hear "animation") then I gotta make sure I'm really happy with what I'm working towards. The last thing I want to do in animation is make gag films, they've been made over and over again, and you need to be a genius to do something new with them. I'm not a genius, so I set out to not make a gag film. From this, Cowboy, Clone, Dust was born. Cowboy, Clone, Dust is a very personal film set in a surreal world. Every character is a combination of who I am, who I want to be, and who I think I appear to be. This is pretty clear to anyone who knows me. I don't think I want to say more, I hope you enjoy it.

-Matthew Christensen

BIO:
Matthew Christensen graduated from NYU in 2011 with a major in film and animation. He grew up in the suburbs of Detroit where he fell in love with stop motion at a young age watching Wallace and Gromit films and the behind the scene footage of The Nightmare Before Christmas. He has since been working in the stop motion industry in New York City and Portland, and making his own sculptures and films. Matt is the youngest of three brothers.

Tré Chandler: Dallas


Dates:
Thu Sep 13, 2012 18:00 - Sat Sep 29, 2012

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America

In an increasingly rhizomatic world defined by information exchange, I see myself as a transitive vessel; a biological interface for the codes and references that make up the cultural currency and authenticity of my experience. I use my practice to convey the humorous extremity of contemporary existence.

Dallas is a single-channel video made in 2009. I intended it as an amusing portrayal of characters transmitting 'personality' with repeated mediated gestures. The no-budget quality isolates body language and exposes the casualness of video logic being articulated in human behavior.

- Tré Chandler

Jonathon Keats: CLONING CELEBRITY


Dates:
Thu Sep 13, 2012 18:00 - Sat Oct 27, 2012

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America

In our scientifically advanced society, the optimal way to create a portrait is to clone the human subject.

Epigenetics takes into account environmental factors including diet, stress, and exposure to toxins. In five pilot studies at the AC Institute, Keats is epigenetically cloning five celebrities. His subjects are some of the most popular people alive, and some of the most widely emulated, including Lady Gaga, Michael Phelps and Barack Obama.

Claude Closky: Barking and Meowing


Dates:
Thu Sep 13, 2012 18:00 - Sat Oct 27, 2012

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America


Barking and Meowing:

For the installation, Barking and Meowing, French conceptual artist Claude Closky focuses on appearance, spoken language and the space between dialogue and monologue. The installation is composed of sound and two masks placed on opposite walls, one of a dog and one of a cat. The masks voice short sequences of barks and meows. The public is caught between the masks, in the middle of repetitive and incomprehensible speeches.

Rieko KOGA: FUTURE DIARY / HERE WE ARE


Dates:
Thu Jul 12, 2012 18:00 - Sat Jul 28, 2012

FUTURE DIARY / HERE WE ARE
One day I said to myself
"What do I want to read now?"
"What do I want to write now??"

My answer was "My Future Diary."
This artwork started here.

"What words will you say?" It depends on the person,
If the future means 10 years later for some or the future means from now for others. This question is very simple and abstract but we can imagine many things from it.
"When?" "Which situation?"
"Where?" "Which language?"

ーThere are 39 questions about your future in the diaryー

We don't know what we will do in the future and we don’t know what we will say in the next minute, either. But if we can, I hope we will try to think about good things for the future and speak gentle words to each other.

The power of words and thoughts is very strong. It might have some energy to change the world. Even though each word and thought is small. [We don't see them… but …] When they get together, they become powerful.

If you are sad now or if you can't advance because you are afraid, please remember this artwork.
This is your future diary.

If your diary runs short of space, you can patch another cloth to it and make it longer. If you want to change your thoughts, you can take it apart whenever you want! We can't change the past, but we can make our futures as we like! Our futures have limitless possibilities and spread vastly in front of us ... like a plain white cloth!

I hope to share a lot of happiness through my artwork to you who look at and touch it. I create for someone who is waiting for my artwork, someone I know, someone I will know ...
I sew my wishes and my prayers into the cloth with each stitch.
That's why I create ... and why I am here ... now!
