MAGNETIC NORTH
OCTOBER: 12 18 19 20 25 26 27



In these works, the videomakers reframe everyday objects, activities, and situations, in turns rendering the real surreal, reversing the seductions of climactic and cinematic spectacle, and elevating the seemingly mundane. Included are experiments with daily language, explorations--both sobering and hilarious--of routine rituals, and performative reenactments of daily life. Program length 86 minutes.
