Elemental Dispositions

Recent Films by Stratman, Stark, Rebello, Pryce, Takashi and Kitchen

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

This program of new and recent short work by local and international film and video artists delves into the tactile, the meditative and the provocative. Relationships to our environs – natural, terrestrial and constructed – are explored and re-configured, evoking and provoking impressions that negotiate, delve into and transcend the surface. Featuring Deborah Stratman’s It Will Die Out in the Mind, Samantha Rebello’s the object which thinks us: OBJECT I, Scott Stark’s Speechless, Charlotte Pryce’s The Parable of the Tulip Painter and the Fly, Makino Takashi’s Elements of Nothing (featuring the music of Jim O’Rourke) and Diane Kitchen’s Ecstatic Vessels.
