Opening Saturday March 6, 2020, 12-14h, “Experiments with Holofans and Film is Dead..” is our Los Angeles based artist Jennifer West’s 3rd solo show with us and consists of one large-scale installation "Film is Dead" that incorporates manipulated celluloid film and digital video, plus 3 new Holofans; Cat Clone Copy Hologram nr 1-3 are 2K High-definition video (transferred from 16mm painted with urine and inks, 16mm shot by Peter West), 3D Hologram LED projector 48 seconds looped.
The installation "Film is Dead" comprises a cascading 25-foot-wide curtain of primarily 70mm filmstrips, hung from the ceiling and spanning a large part of the gallery. West manipulates the filmstrips using everyday household materials—including ink, dye, food coloring, spray paint, nail polish, dirt, salt, and bleach—and subjects them to scratches and perforations by knives, mirror shards, vegetable peelers, and more. West, along with her friends and fellow artists, mark the filmstrips with their lips...and breasts. These changes, erosions, and impressions to the film emulsion create colored splotches, grid-like patterns, and chance effects.
The curtain of filmstrips curls to the floor and appears to “feed” into three 75 inches flat-screen monitors placed side-by-side. On these screens plays the digitized film of the manipulated filmstrips in a continuous loop. Visitors will be able to walk around all four sides of this immersive environment for an “analog-meets-digital” experience.
The show runs until April 4, 2020. Opening hours will 12-18 Monday - Friday and weekends by appointment.
