Film screening | Get Straight or Die
Daniel Lichtman and Dynamo Arts Association are very excited to present a video screening featuring works by Maia Conran, Asta Gröting, Bill Santen and Jemima Stehli to accompany Lichtman’s current show at the gallery, “Get Straight or Die” on Saturday 8 October 2016.
Videos in the program draw on a variety of human and non-human bodies, scripted and improvised language, music and the gaze of the camera to each render a portrait from the perspective of an unseen or imaginary interlocutor.
Maia will be showing:
Meat, 2016, HD video, 5 minutes
Meat features a film studio lighting rig that is re-purposed as the protagonist of a scripted psycho-narrative. The rig’s monologue reveals a variety of social discomforts and a multiplicity of voices and selves. Eventually, the dark-presence of the rig is punctured by footage of its counter-character, Meat.
