Curtains!, 2010

multiple channel video, audio, performance installation, 2010

In this multiple-screen video, sound and performance installation, mysterious, shimmering red curtains (created from composited animations), repeatedly and unexpectedly open and close, sometimes revealing an empty stage or odd, disjointed ‘art performances’, ‘video art’, and snippets of music, reminiscent of a lost 1970s cable access Art TV show.

Performer: Michael Buscemi

Curtains! premiered at PS122 during Avant-Garde-Arama, in spring 2010. It was also shown as an installation at HERE Arts
