Light Work and Urban Video Project announce two new videos, "Asylum" and "Smoke" (both 2010), by Australian-born, New York artist Jeff Gibson.
In "Asylum" Gibson takes a leaf from each of his two most recent artist’s books: "Dupe: A Partial Compendium of Everyday Delusions" (a dictionary of quasi-clinical, art-world pathologies; sardonic but earnest) and "Sarsaparilla to Sorcery" (a picture book exploring perceptual ambiguities between allusive abstract photographic images and taxonomic illustrations swiped from old encyclopedia Britannica). Through a chain of slow, poetic dissolves, the video blends psychologistic text with dreamy, morphic imagery into a weirdly visceral stream of consciousness.
The Urban Video Project presents "Asylum" and "Smoke" as part of its programming for the month of January. The videos will screen on the north face of the Everson Museum of Art from 5-10:30PM every Thursday through Sunday.
