14.09.17 | EVERYTHING THIS MIGHT BE
[A Selection of Works by Mary Helena Clark | Une sélection d’oeuvres réalisées par Mary Helena Clark]

“The world of moving images is fraught with comparisons to magic, to illusions. It is our inheritance and it’s where photographic work gets its heat. Mary Helena Clark’s films work because she understands the perpetual strangeness of seeing “real life” projected on a screen. She understands how to craft a vision of that reality that is highly subjective while still being attuned to the audience’s desires, expectations and baggage. And, in so doing, her works subvert our expectations of the veracity of moving images, while at the same reaffirming the vitality of the well-timed magic trick.” - Jesse Malmed, Bad at Sports

15.09.17 | DIALOGUES : LETTER FORMS
[Programme by Mary Helena Clark]

Dialogues : Every month VISIONS invites visiting artists to curate a programme in dialogue with their own work.

This program of works selected by Mary Helena Clark is loosely about films as letters or responses to real or fictional characters - films as transmittals of affinity that, to quote Mary Ruefle, "originate in the pressing need to make a message directed at something unnear, that the absence of the unnear be made to appear present." - MHC

With films by : Karen Yasinsky, Dorothy Wiley, Neil Henderson, Jessica Jackson Hutchins + Jean Paul Kelly
