Barbara Kasten and Lucky Dragons: REMIX
@ Applied Arts
845 W Washington Blvd, Chicago, IL 60607
Opening Friday, March 11th, from 6PM - 8PM
On view through Tuesday, May 31st
A multi-channel video installation by Barbara Kasten featuring sound by Lucky Dragons.
Barbara Kasten is one of the preeminent photographers working today, a precursor to the recent generation of artists photographing staged environments such as Eileen Quinlan and Sara VanDerBeek. For the past 30 years, Kasten has created elaborate constructions, which she then photographs and dismantles. These constructions have varied from large-scale studio set-ups to on-site architectural interventions. The installation at Applied Arts can be seen as a point of convergence, where altered recordings of her studio constructs are thrown against the space’s architecture. Here, Kasten’s photographic interests are expanded with time and motion. The footage in REMIX is essentially just that—a remix. Kasten edits her initial footage and re-shoots the altered footage as she projects it back into the studio. As her interpretation transmits light into new media, the subject begins to turn unrecognizable. Remixes of four sound pieces by Lucky Dragons will accompany the installation.
