“Knitted Light”
Ocularis: Sunday, November 16, 2003
7 pm
An exploration of traditional handcraft and surface design through film and video by artists otherwise uninvolved with textiles. Ranging from the underground improvisations of Jack Smith to the educational approach of Charles and Ray Eames, these works blend the material presence of the image with the abstraction of repeated pattern and the ephemeral nature of touch.
Work to be shown includes:
Charles and Ray Eames: “Textiles and Ornamental Arts of India,” 1955, 11 minutes, 16 mm film transferred to video
Jack Smith: “Scotch Tape,” 1959/62, 3 minutes, 16 mm film
Yayoi Kusama/ Jud Yalkut: “Kusama’s Self Obliteration,” 1967, 24 minutes, 16 mm film
Annabel Nicholson: “Slides,” 1971, 14 minutes, 16 mm film
Joan Jonas/Richard Serra: “Veil,” 1971, 6 minutes, video
Stephen Beck: “Video Weavings,” 1976, 9 minutes, video
