This program of video art at Parallel brings together works which take on the topic of nature through a variety of approaches and means; Each video articulates its own position and point of view in relation to nature, as a site, a place, as reality or as concept.read more
PPaRRaLLeLL, the third iteration of video-art screening at Parallel, is comprised of a series of pairs. Each video is coupled with an odd partner, a pairing that exposes hidden motifs and unearths surprising themes. These pairings expose new issues within each piece – be it stylistic, thematic, or conceptual – thus causing our perception of each work to change. At the same time, this coupling also reveals how our mind operates with its desire to make sense and meaning of what first may appear random or erratic.read more
August 1st through September 23rd
“Walking Along the Lines” – Parallel’s first video art program – presented a series of video works that focused on articulating and exploring movement.
The current cycle, “Running in Circles” – on view from August 1st to September 23rd – embodies the theme of movement in its syntax; instead of obeying a strict thematic line, the works selected for this program are tied together associatively. Works with different styles, paces and themes come together in a circular game of tag, whereby one element from the first work is informing the selection of the next piece, which in turn gives way for another motif that is echoed in the following video, and so forth.read more
