What lies within the frame?   Art’s oldest subject, the landscape, shifts under the weight of new technological processes.  Lived landscape presents a collection of short video pieces that attempt to push, reframe, preserve, and regulate composition within a horizontal canvas.  Using moving image as a means to juxtapose illustrations and illusions these films attempt to orient themselves within an progressively mediated environment.

LIVED LANDSCAPES includes work by Marianna Milhorat, Phil Solomon, Nicholas O’Brien, Yuri Ancarani, and Irina Botea.

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.
