Objects In Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear
The screening of Objects In Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear is the third installment of the Solus 2014 tour, covering USA, Russia and Ireland. Director Masha Godovannaya says “This film is a personal dedication to New York, “a city symphony” to the place which means so much to me” For information on the film, please visit: soluscollective.com.
Tangled And Far
(Vicky Langan/Maximilian Le Cain, 2013, 12 mins)
This video is the most recent in the ongoing collaboration between Vicky Langan and Maximilian Le Cain. Drawing on footage of Langan’s performances over the past two years, as well as scenes specifically shot for this video, it foregrounds the overlap between intimate domestic detail and its reflection in Langan’s performance work. The private and public projections of her presence and actions collapse into each other in this phantasmagoric continuum of alternate selves and self-images to form a fractured dream portrait.
(Dean Kavanagh/Maximilian Le Cain/Rouzbeh Rashidi, 2014, 97 mins)
This collaborative feature is an ostensibly science fictional trip, arranged in three half-hour ‘phases’, one by each director. They are three witnesses to the invasion giving three accounts. Are they observing the same thing? Were there any warning signs? And, after all they’ve seen and heard, are they even competent to offer a reliable report? The purpose of this film is to demonstrate that an effort to construct functions known not to exist may on occasion produce interesting frauds. (Please note: this film contains intense strobing effects.)
