UNDERNEATH...




UNDERNEATH...a nostalgia for paint... (5min. computer animation with Erich Kory on cello) shown at the Walker Art Center as part of ISEA'93. Screening at Hopkins Center for the ArtsDartmouth College, and ISEA'93 annual show reel


UNDERNEATH: A NOSTALGIA FOR PAINT explores a sterile art gallery displaying only images (from varying points of view) of the same fenced-in winterscape, sheltering an ominous satellite dish and peppered with cautionary signs; metallic cubes housing TV monitors broadcasting war footage are topped by revolving cubes emblazoned with the stars-and-stripes of the American flag; the military-industrial complex's icy grip on communication is chillingly evoked.  -  © STEVE BISSETTE
