SPECTRAL ASCENSION: Super 8 and 16mm Films by Paul Clipson

Friday, April 28 at 8 PM

This retrospective surveys Clipson’s works on reversal Super 8mm and 16mm negative, covering films made between 2007 and 2017. Each of these films, with their approach to studying light, texture, color, focus, in-camera editing and superimposition, also chart a distinct journey in collaboration and interactions with a universe of sound artists and musicians, including Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, Grouper, Gregg Kowalsky, Sarah Davachi, Lawrence English and many others.

The evening’s program will include OTHER STATES (2013), BRIGHT MIRROR(2013), LIGHTHOUSE (2015),and MADE OF AIR (2014), and will feature a premiere on 16mm of SPECTRAL ASCENSION (2017) with a soundtrack by Byron Westbrook. The filmmaker will be present to project the films and participate in a Q&A after the screening. Films will be screened in their original formats.

Paul Clipson is a San Francisco-based filmmaker who often collaborates with sound artists and musicians on films, live performances, and installations. His Super 8 and 16mm films aim to bring to light visual preoccupations that reveal themselves while working in a stream of consciousness manner, combining densely layered, in-camera edited studies of figurative and abstract environments, in a process that encourages unplanned-for results, responding to and conversing with the temporal qualities of musical composition and live performance. His work has screened around the world in festivals and at sound and film events such as the International Film Festival Rotterdam, The New York Film Festival, and the Cinémathèque Française. In March and April he will be touring Europe with Jeremy Young and Shinya Sugimoto for sound/film performances in London, Manchester, Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and other cities. http://www.withinmirrors.org/

This screening is made possible thanks to a grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
