Stephanie Barber in person
Deeply philosophical, frequently humorous and deceptively simple in form, the films, video works, poetry and book projects of Stephanie Barber operate at the intersections of spoken, written, composed, conversational and incidental language, reflecting shifting experiential qualities and varying modes of address. Barber’s feature-length DAREDEVILS (2013) is a three-part narrative portrait of risk and intimacy, presenting an interview between a young writer and an admired artist as a reverberating life event and turning point. Writes Barber, "The classic rising action, climax and denouement are sculpted, not by cause and effect, but by the subtle movements to and from understanding that are inherent in conversation. Bubbles of intimacy are blown and popped, begin to be blown again."
Come early (7pm) for a pre-show, as-you-enter excerpt of I Love You, a Valentine’s Day delight (drawn from jhana and the rats of james olds) featuring 789 visitors to Barber’s 2011 artist-in-residence project at the Baltimore Museum of Art.
