    • James Lane,"Dionysus' Mirror", 2011, (8min, video)


      from James Lane Added 239 2 0

      James Lane's performance “Dionysus’ Mirror” took place in Feb. 2011, during the opening of his solo exhibition "Alluvium" at Beton 7 Center for the Arts, in Athens, Greece. For more information about James Lane's art visit www.jamesmlane.com The performance was solemnly executed by a triad. The artist in a role resembling that of High Priest led the ceremony while flanked by his two assistants actor Peris Michailidis and Tanya Veanous Tsakirian student of Philosophy and History of Science. The video documenting the performance was filmed by Dimitris Merantzas and edited by Thanos Fatouros and James Lane. In short, an exposed film is recovered from a vintage camera. The camera is then butchered, boiled and grilled. The scheme parallels the Orphic myth of Dionysus-Zagreus; the salvaging of his heart, his deception by the use of a mirror and his final torment by the Titans. Prologue The artist travels overnight to Levadia, Greece. As the dawn breaks through the night he collects water from two springs associated with the Oracle of Trophonius Zeus; the springs of Lethe (Oblivion) and Mnemosyne (Memory). A drop of water from Lethe is placed on a mirror. It soon evaporates leaving a trace of salt deposits. Stage 1 In the white, brightly lit gallery of Beton 7 - a space crossing boundaries between laboratory and operating room - lying on an array of raised mirror surfaces are exhibits: an early twentieth century photographic album, a book of records detailing formal luncheons and dinners, a gypsum relic of a marital couple, the trace of water from the spring of Lethe, a vintage Brownie Target Six-16 camera. After decades of darkness, a Kodak Panatomic-X film is painstakingly recovered from the Brownie camera by the artist, flanked by his two assistants during a solemn, quasi-surgical procedure. The film is placed in a clay container for safekeeping until its pending development. Stage 2 The camera resting on the mirror is taken to the underground black box theater of the art center. It is placed on a butcher-block that travelled the Atlantic ocean from the artist’s paternal home in New York. After a few tense minutes the artist manages to cut through the camera splitting it into two approximately equal parts. A cloud of fine air-born particles rises in the dark space of the room. Stage 3 The torn camera lying on the mirror is transported to the gallery. A reflective vessel is filled with the oracular water collected earlier from the spring of Lethe. The water is brought to a boil and the camera halves are immersed. They release a black liquid. A broth is produced. Stage 4 The boiled camera pieces are transported outside to be spread on a barbeque grill. They soon catch on fire while smoke rises. The smoldering remains are ceremoniously laid down on the mirror and returned to the gallery to lie among the rest of the exhibits.

              • 20) Disinformation Breakdown (2008)


                from Matt Sheridan Added 186 4 0

                Video RT: 6 minutes 15 seconds. Color, non-sync appropriated collage audio accessible by cellphone RT: 9 minutes 5 seconds. Both components are loops. Dimensions: 60' x 15' (18.3m x 4.6m); phone number toll free at +1 888-205-6789 (still operational). Documentation video RT: 9 minutes 5 seconds (cut to the soundtrack). This projected-fresco-painting-as-video-game abstractly investigates the ambivalences and concerns of an art student in a time of a war (never mentioned or discussed by my peers because most students knew no soldiers in their social circles) working within a former military industrial complex testing facility (Art Center College of Design's South Campus Wind Tunnel, in Pasadena CA) where delivery systems for weapons of mass destruction were tested and designed. Does being an artist in a building loaded with that history suggest complicity to war in general? When structures' inherent backstories are obscured and co-opted, how can artists confront cultural complicity to avalanches of distractions from every front? Using large-scale painting-in-motion projections and a soundtrack only accessible by cellphone, Disinformation Breakdown identifies multiple elephants in the room for mass consumption, but most specifically the cultural impact of the redaction of war from public awareness. A sound montage from Painters Painting (1972) -- in which all references to art were redacted in accordance to the video being built from marks of redaction (splatter, blur, mosaic, static)-- was played on a toll free number accessible only by cellphone, the very instrument being used to kill soldiers in the field as triggers for IED's (improvised explosive devices). In 2011, this work was shrunk down by 1/2 (from 15' x 60' to 8' x 27') to fit into the context of a New Delhi group show, "hanging" with paintings and sculptures outside the black box. This was the first work in which I animated paintmarks to drive the work as a whole.
