    Witold Krymarys (b. 1948) has been active in the artistic field since 1972. In the 1980s he took interest in structural video and started to penetrate fields bordering on photography and video. He created the series "Fotomocje" ("Photomotions"). These were blurred photos taken at lower shutter speed, which deprived the image from the resemblance to reality up to the point of being illegible. As the author claims, that point or border was crucial to him. The photographic series found its conclusion at the exhibition "E-MOTION" at the Gallery of Lódz Photographic Association in 1978, and inspired the following video works. By the 1990s, Krymarys recorded a couple of dozens of short films, often documentaries based on the themes from local artistic life.

  • NW Film Center: An Evening with George Kuchar

    An Evening with George Kuchar

    San Francisco film and video maker George Kuchar is one of the most interesting and prolific (over 200 works) media makers working today. With his homemade Super-8 and 16mm potboilers and melodramas of the 1950s, ’60s, and ’70s, he became legendary as one of the most distinctive and outrageous American underground filmmakers. In the 1980s he transitioned to video, making dozens of subversive, witty, often diaristic works employing friends, students (at the San Francisco Art Institute), and whatever might be creatively (“no-budget”) at hand. Tonight’s sampling of recent works includes, along with other surprises, The Hairy Horror (2009), a short meditation on a tall terror in the trees that shade shadowy giants from the glare of sanity; Burrito Bay (2009), a video diary about the making of another of his films, Tropical Vulture, which “blends Hollywood glamour and drama with an all-too-real-life approach”; Portrait Of Genie (2008)—"An ex-student of mine opens up in the privacy of her home and shows me her etchings (watercolors) as we talk of art and things that slip under the fabric of daily attire"; and X Mass (2008)—“A California winter turns the left coast into a brew of foaming festivities while landlubbers leap for joy in the spray of salty slurping.” "[Kuchar’s films] were my first inspiration…the pivotal films of my youth, bigger influences than Warhol, Kenneth Anger, even THE WIZARD OF OZ."—John Waters.

    Co-presented by QDoc: Portland Queer Documentary Film Festival. Kuchar also visits the School of Film for conversations with filmmakers.

    (An Expanded Screening)

    Dan Graham’s artistic practice has been influenced by music from early on and this interest becomes more explicit in the late 1960s through some of his first writings such as Live Kinks, 1969 a review of a concert by the Kinks. During the 70s and 80s, Graham developed close working relationships with composer Glenn Branca and musician and Sonic Youth founder Kim Gordon, who supposedly started her music career by taking part in one of Graham’s performance pieces, which didn’t quite go according to plan and turned into a fully fledged concert. Through “a shift towards the documentary” as described by LA MOCA’s Bennett Simpson who recently curated a Graham retrospective, the 1980s saw the release of two video works by the artist which explicitly deal with the subject of popular music: Minor Threat from 1983 on a concert of the American punk band of the same name and the more complex Rock My Religion (1982-84), developed in discussions with Branca, Gordon and Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, all of whom contributing to the soundtrack of the work.

  • Alteridad y ficción

    By on

    Estas muy recientes obras en cine y video se mueven entre la indexicalidad de la imagen y la abstracción. El celuloide enterrado en el mar de MacLean, el orientalismo al revés de y transcendencias de ciencia ficción de Ahwesh, música ruidista llevada a Malobi de Russel, los vestigios del pasado de Klahr y las composiciones marinas de Maria Helena Clark son el material de imagen y sonido de esta sesión de alto voltaje.

     

    Fore-and-Aft, Sara MacLean. Canadá, 2008, 35 mm, 6 min.
