                    Brooklyn, 2012 directed / edited / camera by DOMINIKA MICHALOWSKA "Uber-Modernist critic Clement Greenberg believed each artistic medium was evolving toward an ultimate purity, and in Simon Slater’s work this vision achieves its absurdist apotheosis. Slater eliminates the use of any support, inventing methods to make paintings composed purely of paint. In his new work, Slater takes a ride on the coattails of geometric abstraction, but like a tail wagging the dog he defies the tight structures typical of the genre in favor of a loopier experience. But underneath his wobbly lines, strange textures, and drunken shapes lies a rigorous concern with formalist history and a search for new opportunities." [Exhibition essay by Daniel Gerwin, an editor of Title, an online magazine covering visual art in Philadelphia.]

                      'Dwelling' plays in Amsterdam Zuidoost. The splitscreen video is based on the notorious Dutch movie 'Blue Movie' (1971). The feature film about modern times and modern living caused a lot of disturbance due to the explicit sex in it. In 'Dwelling' there is no sex; the short video focuses on endless wandering in modernist architecture. In the videoworks of Su Tomesen architecture and situations in public space play an important role. Screenings: - Urban screen CASZuidas Amsterdam, ongoing from December 2010 - Toronto Urban Film Festival, Toronto, Canada. September 9 till 18, 2011.
