Returning after a hiatus, the New Works Salons series is a casual forum for the presentation and discussion of new works in film, video, sound, and performance with local and visiting artists in-person to introduce their work. Margo Victor will present her new work Moon Phases, a short 16mm film that takes a whimsical and casual approach to capturing different phases of the moon from unlikely vantage points in Los Angeles, literally chasing the moon into the night, during and after some of the moon cycles of spring and summer, catching what she could. She will also show Astronauts, picture completed in 2014 and music just recently composed for the film by Pat Gleeson. This will debut the music with the film as a test run. Margo’s work in 16mm and 35mm have been exhibited both nationally and internationally in galleries, institutions, and festivals since the late nineties. Minjung Kim will screen two recent works: Footage, in which the physical length of our body turns into the temporal measurement on film, and Australian Paper, in which 1400 tints printed onto paper in 2005 are transferred to emulsion to be seen in a new light. EPFC LA AIR alum Eve Fowler will show her new work Many Many Women, a film that pairs artists and friends in their studios and homes with an audio track of artists reading from Gertrude Stein’s Many Many Women. Shannon Ebner will show the video An Unrested Image (2013), in which a classical image of a rotating and stammering torso suggests a resistant grammar that is neither male nor female, formed nor unformed. This video is looped and was originally part of the exhibition ‘A Language of Exposures’ in which it was displayed alongside a body of work comprised of photographic images. Another EPFC LA AIR alum, Kate Brown will screen later chapters of the film Vilas Kortas, filmed at the Long Beach Grand Prix and the Port of Los Angeles. After a loud, fast road race on city streets, the film looks to the sea, to the tail end of a traffic jam at the Port of Los Angeles and life near the water. Kate Alexandrite, who will show a collection of recent videos including Real Estate of Being, is an artist interested in the role social and architectural spaces play towards identity creation. Currently she is working on a project focused on Southern California landscapes, with a special focus on how they can be portrayed through sound. Katherine is about to start her last year of the MFA program at UC Riverside.
