May 19th 2010

This one goes out to all of you fans of mimes, Frozen Moments, The Festival of Living Art episode of the Gilmore Girls, paintings that stare back and Gallery 400’s three current exhibitions of works by Eun Hyung Kim, Andy Moore and Erin Cosgrove. In response to all of the drawn tableaux present in the latter and as part of a more generalized attempt to rethink the still life as a movement-image (Eric Fleischauer), your time-based pals Jesse McLean and Ben Russell have gathered together a series of films and videos that are certain to unstick you in at least two out of three dimensions. This is The Tableaux Vivant Show, after all. – please join us as we sit down to a rather kinetic breakfast (Michael Snow) and leaf through the funny pages (Channel Zero), revisit the art history textbooks ad nauseum (Hermine Freed, Jeroen Eisinga), meditate on roadkill-as-landscape (JJ Murphy), and take a quiet stroll through a field of flickering flowers (Rose Lowder). Ah, Gallery 400 – who knew that our still lives could be so moving?!?
