Exploring states of psychological purgatory, journeys of spiritual flux and the possibilities of transcendence found in the act of getting lost, these episodes in the struggles and joys of the transient being are in turns haunting, hilarious, damning and hopeful. Running Up That Hill features Shana Moulton’s desert vision quest, Sand Saga; Ben Rivers’ foggy portrait of pilgrimage, The Coming Race; Jesse McLean’s reality television meltdown Somewhere Only We Know; Tsuji Naoyuki’s entrancing charcoal nightmare, Children of Shadows; Phil Solomon’s intervention into the Grand Theft Auto netherworld, Rehearsals for Retirement; an excerpt of Ryan Trecartin’s miasma of cloning, adoption and online identity, I-Be Area; and curator Michael Robinson’s most recent work, If There Be Thorns.
