Meredith James "Land Lock"

I am very proud to be a part of this film being presented at the Jack Hanley Gallery March 15 - April 13, 2014.


Here is a little about the peice:

Jack Hanley Gallery is pleased to premiere Land Lock; an installation by Meredith James consisting of a video triptych and an anamorphic floor sculpture.

 In the video “Delmar,” James positions a play by Julia Jarcho about two families living in a landlocked small town within a set built to mimic the extreme foreshadowing and warping of space in medieval panel paintings. In Jarcho's play the dialogue itself presents an unstable kind of reality. As roles change and understandings unravel within the plot, James' elaborate and mutable set seems to undulate around the actors. The language vacillates between the surreal and the familial, so too does each room appear visually impossible and then normal.
