DIFFICULT BUT POSSIBLE

A Supplement to Rules, Tools and Fools

The Nightingale Cinema, 1084 N. Milwaukee
Sunday, September 18th, 8 pm, $7-10

A selection of shorts surrounding not just the the how-to but to-how. Bearing fully in mind the notion of utopia as a no-place, Difficult but Possible animates the notion of a diffuse set of not-yet-places, of worlds unbuilt, of worlds unbuilding, of the crazy-eyed mirage we keep moving toward. Together, we explore terrains fantastical, domestic, speculative and utopian; we learn to dodge the camera all around us and to stare deeply into and through others; we receive allegories from beyond underground weather and beyond Drop City, venture into cited non-sites and pick up some skills along the way.

Co-presented by Spudnik Press, in conjunction with Rules, Tools and Fools,
curated by Jaclyn Jacunski and Jason Pallas;
made possible through the generosity of the Chicago Film Archives,
and the sense of possibility and adventure of the artists

Program Details:

AZIZ AND VALE

2014 I 8:30 I Video I Silent

Kipervaser_Aziz-Vale

A minstrel cannot die in bed. He can only die on the road. During a journey. Dedicated to the guides of the minstrel.

 

FAIR WINDS+ FOLLOWING SEAS

2016 I 4:00 I 16mm I Silent

Kipervaser_FairWinds

The air is cut away before,

And closes from behind.

 

MYTH

2013 I 5:45 I Video I Silent

MYTH

Laid above and in front. A sacrifice and an elegy.

 

A MEETING, IN LIGHT

2014 I 4:45 I Video I Sound

Kipervaser_A Meeting, in Light

And I hold within my hand

Grains of the golden sand –How

few! yet how they creep

Through my fingers to the deep,

While I weep — while I weep!

 

IT WILL BE ADVANTAGEOUS TO CROSS THE GREAT STREAM

2014 I 5:40 I Video I Sound

Kipervaser_Advantageous

Sometimes, and only sometimes, do things magically fall into place. Always, the future is revealed. The past is never quite what it seemed. And if it’s true that destiny adores repetition , then the present is its silent resting place. All things move toward their end.

 

THE ORDER OF REVELATION: 1-5

2015 I 14:00 I 16mm I Silent

Kipervaser_TheOrderOfRevelation_Still

THE ORDER OF REVELATION is a long-form multipart film translating the Quran from Arabic to Visual, in the order in which it was revealed rather than the order in which it was canonized following the rules of recitation of the Quran, reclaiming the Visual as a Language and challenging prioritization of semantic meaning in translation in favor of considerations such as form fidelity.

 

THE INVISIBLE AX

2016 I 5:00 I Video I Sound

ax-still

He knew that the woods are full of forest demons who graze deer and hares like cattle, that the Chuhaistyr – who rends wood nymphs from limb to limb – roams about, inviting passers-by to join him in dance, and that the sound of the ax lives in the forest. He also knew about the Rusalky who emerge from the rivers on clear days to sing songs, to invent tales and prayers, and about the drowned men who dry their pale bodies on river boulders after sunset.

 

HORTUS CONCLUSUS

2015 I 6:45 I Video I Silent

Kipervaser_Hortus

A garden enclosed is my sister, my spouse;

a garden enclosed, a fountain sealed up.

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here tonight to celebrate the life and love of Hard Drive. :~(

When we started this journey together, we assumed it would end in planned obsolescence, but the years we spent together were the best of our lives.

There are so many good memories to back up. :~)

Like the time we improperly ejected Hard Drive, or the great migration from Windows ➡️ Mac OS, but being so solid and dependable, you didn’t lose a bit or byte of info.

Or that fateful day when your sleek, compact design that had once brought us so much joy, made you slip through our fingers to your final resting place.

We held you in our hands, and felt your 7200 RPMS slow down to zero, until the click of death finally overtook your drive as you entered the great bit bucket in the sky.⛅️

Every time we see a ‘media offline’ message, we are reminded of your absence.

We wish there was a Time Machine that could take us back to all the good times you kept in store for us.

Hard Drive, thank you for being part of our lives, and thank you for the memory. ✌️

Your final wishes of being responsibly recycled will be followed though. ❤️♻️☁️

Unfortunately, it was too expen$$$ive to save your contents so all we have now are these videos. ▶︎

Come pay your respects at our screening/funeral for Hard Drive @ The Nightingale.

❤️Family and Friends of Hard Drive❤️:
