In Collaboration with ACRE Projects:

Andrew Mausert-Mooney’s Studio Audience (WEATHER PATTERNS)

JANUARY 11 – 16, 2013

Opening Reception: January 11, 2013 from 8-10PM

Gallery Hours: By Appointment Only

Join Andrew Mausert-Mooney and collaborators* on January 11th for an evening of cinematic vivisection.

**On one end of the gallery there is a set.  An actor performs a series of gestures amidst props, camera persons, a musician, projected backdrops and a studio audience. Simultaneously, at the other end of the gallery, the resulting video piece (WEATHER PATTERNS)  – restricted by frame, dismissive of scale, married by cut – is presented via live feed on a monitor.

The performance repeats, like a voice pronouncing a word until only sound can be heard, for the duration of the opening. At the end of the night a single iteration of the video is selected to run, opposite the empty set, for the remainder of the show.

This opening is produced in collaboration with ACRE Projects.
