How to Reduce Your Masculinity in 10 Easy Steps, and more! The Nightingale will host a selection of brand new works by Chicago based artist Zachary Hutchinson. Co-curated by Zachary Hutchinson & Emily Eddy.

Zachary Hutchinson (b. 1991) is a interdisciplinary artist and programmer. His work is the result of a necessity to play, to collaborate with his friends as a way to cast a realm of possibility in which to act and choreograph our playing around identifying and scrambling the discursive signs of culture and identity that he is not comfortable inheriting. He comes to art through costume making, make up, traditional theater, video making and an obsessive attention to image and transgressive affect. He recently received his BFA at from SAIC and is a MFA candidate at UIC. He has had works shown in Montreal, Mexico City, San Francisco, Berlin and extensively in Chicago. His current project VideoVideoZine.com is a monthly user submitted archive of moving image work along side interviews with young artists and curated videos selections by establish artists.

Video! Video! Zine Presents: Zach Zone Selections! A curation of short video works that have slipped through the cracks of the monthly main page of Video! Video! Zine. Co-curated by Zachary Hutchinson of Video! Video! and Nightingale programmer Emily Eddy, this selection of video work is inherently a description of how contemporary digital media is used both online and on screen.

Video! Video! Zine is devoted to obtaining visibility for moving image makers. Through monthly open calls we motivate and encourage makers to participate no matter what skill level or knowledge of moving image. We also hope to inspire through monthly guest curated “5 video you must see” and interviews of moving image makers who need a spotlight.

By doing this Video! Video! Zine hopes to become an accessible submission based Internet archive of amazing moving image from around the world!

Featured moving image makers are Kelsey Megan Ellison, Liz Cambron, Soheila Azadi Aaron Walker, Ryan Lumley, Sam Grossinger, Jessica Pierotti, Coral Short, Jonathan Leib, Perry Hohlstein and Nandi Loaf

A BODY WITHOUT ORGANS by Stephen Graves
(2012, HD Video, 82 min)

A BODY WITHOUT ORGANS was shot intimately with my father and mother over a one and a half year period at their home in Florida. It is a portrait of their lives in the present, along a continuous present marked by frequent incursions into various pasts, real and imagined. My father has no colon. He is a narcoleptic. His friends are all dead. His life is dreamt. In the house there is my mother. There are the cats. And then there is a body without organs. -SG

RESTLESS LEG SAGA by Shana Moulton
(2012, HD video, 7:14)

In this edition of Moulton’s narrative series, the artist’s character Cynthia suffers from Restless Leg Syndrome, and seeks relief in pharmaceutical ads on TV and in health magazines. In a domestic world enlivened with animated dance and mystic poetry (written and read by poet John Coletti), Cynthia finds relief in the healing mineral AION A, discovered by Swiss artist Emma Kunz.

 

RUN OF LIFE is a collectively curated experimental documentary and expanded media series held at Constellation every third Monday of the month. The series pairs a recent feature experimental documentary with a short nonfiction work in any number of mediums – performance, video short, interactive presentation, audio doc, etc. At each event, a post screening Q&A will be moderated by either a local expert engaged in the movie’s subject matter or an artist involved in the making of the work. RUN OF LIFE seeks to join experimental and documentary media audiences while exploring emerging tactics within representations of reality; the empathetic connection that is built through sensory experience rather than factual arguments; and aesthetic shifts in documentary that come with the breakdown of the fourth wall.  RUN OF LIFE is organized by Robin Amer, Jillian Hansen-Lewis, Sally Lawton, Christy LeMaster, Jenny Miller & Beckie Stocchetti and presented by Constellation Chicago in collaboration with the Nightingale Cinema.
