The space betweens: Tool Time times ten times time, two-tiered translation, hyperspace hypnospace, hot air balloons, Kurt Kren, the trees, the audition, the proscenium wings, smoke on the water, the stars singing back.
A program for, of and by the pore-explorers seeking what’s between the seen and what meaning can be gleaned from the synaptic. Sites of transition and transposition reveal that the heat is often in the imaginative distance between the nameable. These artists—whose work has shown cumulatively in contexts like the Whitney Biennial, Documenta, Rotterdam and the Deep Leap Microcinema—each evince a fascination with these nether spaces that is distinct in its method and aims, but work together and apart as friendly bedfellows. The hope is that the spaces between the works—the small ways large files bristle up against each other in the darkness of the cinema—open up the meanings and feelings of their borders.
