This program features several new works made by Lili White since her last program at Millennium in 2007.
“My thing was always a layered image. In 2008, concurrent fractured frames of video tape were explored. In 2009, different public places, along with their historic and mythic events blended into a collective dreamscape. The idea was to evince the ‘whole’ of ‘it,’ like how ALL the facets form a diamond and is fueled more on a ‘why’ rather than a ‘how.’ The work is located more on the ‘horizontal’–not necessarily one that is linear–but one that stretches out in different directions, like the tentacles of an octopus.” - L.W.
On The future is you: “Like a lithographer’s velvety mezzotint, this monochromic future of molten metal features New York City’s downtown streets after the 9/11 disaster. ‘Seemingly’ among city and forest, the landscape study moves back and forth between Nature’s trees and man’s canyons of steel, showing neither but both. A chromium sound heard–doubled and abstracted–accompanying anxiety and serenity inside us. Exploring the gradient view the focus is on small movement like amoebas in a primordial soup; eventually stretching our attention to the larger matrix where we all reside.” - L.W.
