To Clarify or Force a Pause


2042 W 21st St, Chicago, IL 60608

Opening Sunday, February 5th, from 7:30 PM - 8:30PM

aCinema is thrilled to present To Clarify or Force a Pause, a program of video works that delve into the ever-changing nature of the perceived self. The body is examined as a (false?) locus of the self, and stereotypes are questioned during enactments of found answering machine tapes and oral narratives, reconstructions of childhood memories, excavations into geographical locations past and present, and the act of learning to read. Contributing artists include Kim Kielhofner, Alison SM Kobayashi, Jason Robinson, Josh Yates, Eeva Siivonen, and Colleen Plumb

aCinema is a curatorial project by Janelle VanderKelen + Takahiro Suzuki
