Fighting Kissing Danceing
This designed environment showcases six short video works. From the main gallery of the second floor, a doorway leads to a dark space illuminated by neon rectangles. Upon entering the room, visitors see videos playing and hear sounds and voices as they find places to sit or grip bar on which to lean and watch the screen.
Single channel works are usually seen in public theaters, private homes and on the internet (formats symbolized by the neon). This installation highlights the work of a group of artist who enact individual narratives and use varied video mise-en-scene strategies. Four of the artist who created the works are based in Miami and there's a range of themes and approaches. This was exhibited at the de la Cruz collection, Miami and the Fabric Workshop, Philidelphia 2011.
