Two new films I made to accompany songs by Julia Holter are online:
Finale from the album Tragedy
And World from the album Loud City Song
I will be projecting both of them from the camera original Super 8 at the Echo Park Film Center’s New Works Salon on Saturday, June 15 at 8pm, along with new 16mm films by Mike Stoltz and Sarah Rara.
Saturday June 15 – NEW WORKS SALON – 8 PM
Mike Stoltz will project two 16mm films: his recent Pluses and Minuses—“Real morning with pluses and minuses, my symbols for truth.” –D. Boon, and the in-progress Half Human Half Vapor, a collection of artifacts left by Lewis Vandercar, Floridian sculptor and warlock. Rick Bahto will project the camera original Super 8 films of two works made to accompany songs by Julia Holter—Finale from her album Tragedy and World from her upcoming release Loud City Song. Sarah Rara will show an excerpt from her in-progress 16mm film Ukiah, which examines the goings-on during a gathering of artists and builders at a ranch in Ukiah, California. The film gathers together an array of materials from plant studies and landscapes to the activities of artists surrounding the building of a house to serve as a center for learning and think tank for the upcoming exhibition The Possible curated by David Wlson at the Berkeley Art Museum. Silkscreened onto the film are landscapes drawn by David Wilson, as well as notes and haikus assembled by the group during the gathering. The film serves as a document of the place, the people, and the process of making an exhibition. Other artists TBA!
