Single Channel Video
Acid Rain is very excited to present work by Erica Magrey for the June episode.
"Own This" is one in a series of performative abstracted spatial character vignettes that incorporate video, costume, music, and dance. Each segment is the study of a shape or form that obscures, restricts or otherwise defines the body and the inter-relationship of its aural, emotive, and environmental components. Originally a two-channel video that accompanied a performance within a theatrical set, Own This has been reimagined as a one-channel video. It features a floor-length fringed orange hat that’s reminiscent of a jellyfish; its swishing movements grace a menacing obstacle course of household objects.
Erica Magrey is a video, mixed media, and performance artist who has exhibited and performed in galleries, music venues, alternative spaces, and on public access television, in New York, across the US, and internationally. Highlights include screenings and performances at The Kitchen, Socrates Sculpture Park, Kaskadenkondensator Basel, and Dixon Place, and events for PS1, NADA and Deitch Projects. Magrey was the 2012 NY Artist in Residency with iaab/International Exchange and Studio Program Basel, Switzerland and is a 2012 NYFA Fellow in Interdisciplinary Work. She lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
