0900 SOLAR BOARDING


STEEL ESCAPE from Zahid Jiwa on Vimeo.

Hey all, just a heads up about this totally sick video art show that I've co-curated going down in my hometown Christchurch, New Zealand this Friday. It sort of grew out David Keenan's description of "Hypnagogic Pop" in an issue of last year's Wire magazine, so we've got a totally varied bunch of related vis-aur-al material including amazing music videos from the likes of James Ferraro (above), Ducktails, Oneohtrix Point Never, Speculator, Matrix Metals, and video art pieces from Nate Boyce, Sean McCann and Jeffrey Joyal (New Yoga) and Carlos Laszlo's revised Dark Bong video collage.

The show opens this Friday at 6PM at HSP Gallery, 84 Lichfield Street and runs until April 10. Totally check it out!

image + music: isn't it too much here?... the music alone already generates mental images

richard said...

i think that saturation could work well cos the way the ferraro/clark stuff bleeds out and loops is kind of about cultural excess in a way, i think that's why i like this stuff so much but yeah yr right. i think sound + video is always a problematic thing in art, possibly why lots of artists shy away from putting music with videos
