Jaime Davidovich - Forces/Farces
May 29 - Jul 13
Forces/Farces is a new multi-media installation that combines the artist's work in video and painting. This work addresses the changing global dynamics through seven tableaux installations. Using the metaphor of the theater, the installation examines the global society and our attitudes towards it. A visual play with different chapters, the work is divided into seven separate acts or tableaux dealing with the issues of ecology, consumerism, media blackout, globalism, multi-national economics and overpopulation. The show featured new video work by Davidovich shot in Hong Kong, Japan, Argentina, and Germany. Each tableaux is a free standing structure with its own visuals, video and sound. Viewers walk from tableau to tableau. Upon leaving the gallery space, the public was able to respond to the installation through videotaped interviews at the gallery, answering a series of questions that Davidovich developed with a cultural anthropologist. The videos of collected viewer responses became part of the exhibition with screenings daily in which the public could view other responses to the exhibition.
