  • Lewis Klahr's Circumstantial Pleasures

    By on

    Light Industry is proud to present the world premiere of Circumstantial Pleasures, a new cycle of films by Lewis Klahr.

    Shaped by soundtracks ranging from girl-group bops to post-punk noise, Klahr’s cut-out animations conjure narratives that are at once cryptically articulated and forcefully emotional. These collage films, scholar Tom Gunning observes, “have always mimed the processes of memory by pulling together the discards of contemporary life (images from ads, textbooks, or comic books, objects such as game pieces, menus, playing cards) into scenarios that seem like some Hollywood film dimly remembered.”

    Venue: 

    Light Industry - New York, Estados Unidos
