TELLING TALES: Final Screening, Saturday, February 4!

TELLING TALES presents video by Sara Pomerance, Lydia Moyer, Jennifer Sullivan, and Keren Cytter. Each employs specific narrative devices to explore a variety of themes from relationships to cultural phenomena.

Join 1708 on Saturday, February 4 at 11:00 AM for the final screening of all 4 artists’ works, including a Q&A with Sara Pomerance and Lydia Moyer.

Sara Pomerance
, Everything is Under Control (Running time: 27:11)
Part home movies, part staged scenes, Sara Pomerance’s string of mundane, everyday exchanges between family members poignantly combines humor and pathos.

Followed by a 10 minute Q&A with Sara Pomerance.

Lydia Moyer
, Paradise (Running time: 36:09)
Lydia Moyer examines five sites of societal and environmental disasters, from Jonestown, Guyana to post-Katrina New Orleans, and hints at, though often without fully revealing, the dark stories that inhabit these locations.

Followed by a 10 minute Q&A with Lydia Moyer.

Jennifer Sullivan
, Adult Movie and One-Week Walden (Running time: 35:00)
In Jennifer Sullivan’s videos, the artist turns the camera on herself in two semi-autobiographical works that address, in tongue-in-cheek fashion, an artistic struggle for depth of purpose and authenticity.

Keren Cytter
, Four Seasons and Konstruktion (Running time: 20:08)

Drawing from an archive of influences that includes soap operas and Michelangelo Antonioni, Keren Cytter’s fragmented, non-linear style conveys situations of anxiety and distress in relationships, often imparting a sense of anxiety in the viewer.
