CLICK CLICK CLICK: Screening

Whitebox_CLICKCLICKCLICK 2014_Sabrina Ratté

 Whitebox Art Center presents

Click. Click. Click. Copy. Paste. Drag. Drop. These are the new gestures of digital image making. Click Click Click is a survey of contemporary digital moving image practices that span GIFs, augmented performances, green screen keying, collage, appropriation, Processing, 3D renders and more.

Artists in the screening: Morehshin Allahyari, Claudia Bitran, Hannah Black, Gaby Cepeda and Adriana Minoliti, Jennifer Chan, Jennie Cole, Claire Evans, Dafna Ganani, Geraldine Juárez, Nicole Killian, Claudia Maté, Raquel Meyers, Lorna Mills, Eva Papamargariti, Sabrina Ratté, Tessa Siddle, Giselle Zatonyl

Nicole Killian, Move It, 2013, 30 sec.

Move It is an excerpt from an ongoing investigation into getting the crowd pumped up and moving.

Lorna Mills, Jump Rope, 2011, GIF

Lorna Mills channels and trolls the internet through her assemblage GIFs. Searching the far reaching corners of the world wide web, Mills pulls out the most peculiar, inane, and baffling imagery and then recontextualizes it into her own carefully crafted compositions.

Claudia Bitran, The Zone: Action, 2013, 3:17 min

The Zone is a series of three trailers for movies that do not exist: a Korean horror film, a Latino action film, and a French drama film. In the Latino action trailer, I perform as Macarena de las Heras, a strong and determined woman who has to go through different adventures in order to enter “The Zone.” She rides motorcycles, fights gangsters, tries to get information from the gatas, and shoots guns while running through the desert and making out with hot guys.

Gaby Cepeda and Adriana Minoliti, Conspirativas (series), 2013, GIF

These collaborative images capture an intersection between the artists’ loving interrogations of celebrity culture (Cepeda) and pornography (Minoliti). The result is an image that tackles female sexuality in its vicissitudes.

Claudia Maté, Fill Shapes, 2012, 1:54 min.

Fill Shapes uses Processing and After Effects to make squares and circles dance across the screen in this brightly colored geometric fantasy.

Lorna Mills, Garden Variety (series), 2013, GIF

Lorna Mills, Stress Relief, 2011, GIF

Eva Papamargariti, RandomAccessData, 2014, 4:50 min.

RandomAccessData is a parallel visual and verbal narration between references; it is a stream of information that creates a tag cloud based on random thoughts about post- internet art, radical utopian groups of the ’60s, today’s virtual field, the definitive role of searching and tagging inside the cyberspace, terms like distribution and reproduction of image, constant data flow, internet immersion, real ID vs cyber ID and the notion of auto generated content.

Dafna Ganani, I Dream of I Dream of Jennie, 2013, 3:42 min.

I Dream of I Dream of Jennie is a mediated performance by the artist Dafna Ganani. It references the 70’s American TV series I Dream of Jeannie and uses glitched images of copyrights licenses, biopunked Barbara Eden in her Jeannie costume, dolphins, BIOS homepage to propose a cybernetics fantasy: beings with both organic and cybernetic parts.

Gaby Cepeda and Adriana Minoliti, Conspirativas (series), 2013, GIFs

Hannah Black, Intensive Care/Hot New Track, 2013, 5:36 min

Remixed fragments of what’s allowed to appear on the surface of the world: Rihanna/Chris Brown, US/Iraq, blackness/whiteness, pain/pleasure, money/body. “Love and shame are the theory and the practice.”

Lorna Mills, Garden Variety (series), 2013, GIF

Geraldine Juárez, Love Not Money, 2009, 1:06 min

In 2009, months after the stock market meltdown, i created a personal stock market to track my assets: desires, work, routines, expectations and emotions – and how the way i valued them felt closer to death, money or love.

The video is the output of four weeks of emotional capitalism, where my assets were collected in a notebook and mapped and visualized originally in Processing.

Claire Evans, Digital Decay: Meditation/Disintegration, 2011, 1:50 min

Meditation/Disintegration is an animation of individual video frames saved in incrementally lower file formats hundreds and hundreds of times. Where is the line at which compression ceases to preserve information entirely? The digital image washes away on the tide of its own preservation. The beach ball is the third eye.

Lorna Mills, Splode (series), 2012, GIF

Morehshin Allahyari, The Romantic Self-Exiles I, 2012, 5:06 min.

To build a land; an imaginary home. To push the limits of real and unreal, memory and imagination, locality and universality. To put together my most vivid memories on flat planes or 3D cubes. Inside and outside the empty rooms, rooms without bodies, rooms left behind. A reflection and presentation of emotional attachments. Collective and personal.

Jennie Cole, a device of a special type, 2012, 3:32 min.

a device of special type investigates encounters with text in electronic media, in response to Donna Haraway’s assertion that writing is ‘pre-eminently the technology of cyborgs’. Exploring ideas of transhumanist possibility alongside the manipulations of identity suggested by the internet’s corporate ‘like’, the language in this video is at once page-based, screen-based, illuminated and infiltrated by symbols and logos.

Lorna Mills, Garden Variety (series), 2013, GIFs

Tessa Siddle, Hexenhaus, 2010, 2:47 min.

Hexenhaus is a video fragment from a series of work about domestic ritual and relations between humans, houseplants, and animals. Following the collapse of a relationship a failed banishing ritual is performed with my pet houseplants/familiars. An attempt to convert loneliness into solitude results in only more loneliness.

Nicole Killian, Attention, 2013, 2:53 min.

Attention is a video exploring mall madness and meditation.

Gaby Cepeda and Adriana Minoliti, Conspirativas (series), 2013, GIFs

Giselle Zatonyl, The Harm of Coming into Existence, 2014, 1:57 min.

Zatonyl’s 3D rendered video juxtaposes glittery, soft colors with hard lines forming an imaginative factoy-like space that produces unknown, but assuredly delightful things.

Jennifer Chan, Boyfriend 男友 [Nanyou], 2014, 6:27 min.

BOYFRIEND combines YouTube-captured webcam videos with images of dominant East Asian masculinity. Headlined by a Mandarin cover of Justin Bieber’s pop hit Boyfriend, K-pop stars, J-pop stars, Taiwanese diaspora, and Canto-pop icons, are recut against confessional Asian American “dudes” to deliberate the superficial aspects of performing the archetypal romantic straight male partner in Asian culture.

Lorna Mills, Linguine Primavera, 2013, GIF

Lorna Mills, Kitty Fire, 2011, GIF

Raquel Meyers, 2SLEEP1 ❚❚❚❚❚❚❚ 002. MATSAMÖT, 2013, 3:23 min.

Matsamöt is part of 2SLEEP1, a playlist of audiovisual performances in text mode, designed to make you fall asleep. The music interface and the graphics are built up from text symbols (PETSCII). Made by Raquel Meyers and Goto80 using c-64.

Sabrina Ratté, The Land Behind, 2013, 4:56 min.

Traveling on an undefined territory where the illusion of a continuous tracking shot emphasizes an unreachable destination. Through the syncopated editing and multiple transitions, images of the area themselves become traveling entities, creating confusion on the level of the depicted space as much as with the level of its temporality.

NO EXIT : A Project by Khaled Jarrar

Whitebox Art Center Presents

NO EXIT
A Project by Khaled Jarrar
On View July 24th – August 9th (extended)

Opening reception at Whitebox Art Center July 24th 5 – 7 pm

Link to images and press packet 

New York City – Whitebox Art Center presents a solo show by Palestinian artist Khaled Jarrar, produced and curated by Myriam Vanneschi.

The Israel Border Police denied artist Khaled Jarrar exit to travel to NYC for this project and his participation in the show Here and Elsewhere at the New Museum. He has since decided to create a new work for this show that deals with his status as well as the current situation in Gaza. This new media piece will be live updated as the situation develops.

Khaled Jarrar describes his experience attempting to leave Palestine on July 23rd, 2014: “Another massacre is taking place in Gaza, and Israel is trying to sell it as a war with Hamas using a deceptive media campaign, turning the oppressed into a villain. It is a fact that Israel is an occupying and apartheid country that controls our land, steals our water and natural resources, depriving us of our basic human rights for the past 66 years. The Israeli recurrent massacres will never end. Telling and sharing our stories and what is happening in Palestine is very essential. We are obliged to take the streets and strongly condemn the killing of the people of Gaza”.

NO EXIT is produced and curated by Myriam Vanneschi and co-produced by Igor Molochevski.
The programs of Whitebox Art Center are made possible in part by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

TIME:CODE is an exhibition of video art selected from Whitebox Art Center’s archive. The title and curatorial framework metaphorically weave technical nomenclature for video and film synchronization and the experimental film directed by Mike Figgis. The former is addressed in the historical arc of the exhibition consisting of important works by early video pioneers, including Michael Snow, Jonas Mekas, Carolee Schneemann, Gary Hill, Dieter Froese, Dara Birnbaum, Dennis Oppenheim and Jaime Davidovich, shown alongside a succeeding generation of video artists including Ai Weiwei, Gordon Cheung, Sislej Xhafa and others who have engaged the medium as innovatively as their predecessors.
