Rachel Rose’s work will be featured in a solo programme as part of the BAMcinématek series Migrating Forms curated by Kevin McGarry.
In this programme, Rose presents three recent videos: A Minute Ago (2014), in which a freak hailstorm obliterating a perfect beach day is juxtaposed with the peacefulness of Philip Johnson’s Glass House during a Connecticut downpour; Palisades in Palisades (2014), which is set inside a Revolutionary War oil painting and depicts the infinitesimal details of, presumably, a girl’s modern-day visit to the same shores of the Hudson River; and Sitting Feeding Sleeping (2013), whose protagonists are exotic animals held in captivity, performing these eponymous actions as a means of demonstrating life.
Rose’s films will screen with a clip from Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii (1972), a source for Rose’s video A Minute Ago, which finds the band playing live among the ruins, and T.Z. (1979), Robert Breer’s classic of avant-garde animation set in Nyack, NY, and overlooking the Palisades.
The screening will feature at Q&A with Rachel Rose.
