Rachel Rose at Brooklyn Academy of Music, New York

10. 01. 2015

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.
