APPARITIONS: A 16MM EXPANDED CINEMA PERFORMANCE BY ALEX MACKENZIE

Wednesday, March 15 at 8 PM   

Inspired by early stereo imaging and the clash and collusion of socioeconomic forces, this work seeks to dismantle cinematic codes while foregrounding projector and light as sculpture: a conscious corruption of and interference with the apparatus to evoke the unexpected, reshaping representation into the realm of material and space. Using colour gels, masking, lens interference and projector movement in tandem with an exploration of binocular disparity, perspective, patterning and the film surface itself, APPARITIONS explores the transitional space between image and abstraction, nature and culture. 55 minutes (2 x 16mm hand processed colour + b&w), 2016. FILMMAKER IN ATTENDANCE!

PROGRAM MADE POSSIBLE WITH SUPPORT BY THE ANDY WARHOL FOUNDATION FOR THE ARTS. 

Doors 7:30 pm. Admission: $5.
