As part of the BAMcinématek series Migrating Forms at Brooklyn Academy of Music, Rachel Rose presents three recent videos: A Minute Ago (9min, US, 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 (9min, US, 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 (10min, US, 2013), whose protagonists are exotic animals held in captivity, performing these eponymous actions as a means of demonstrating life.
Programmed by Kevin McGarry, the screening also includes a clip from Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii (13min, 1972), a source for Rose’s video A Minute Ago, which finds the band playing live among the ruins, and T.Z. (9min, US, 1979, 16mm), Robert Breer’s classic of avant-garde animation set in Nyack, NY, and overlooking the Palisades.
This screening will feature a Q&A with Rachel Rose.
