Shadow Land

New Langton Arts

Co-Sponsored by New Langton Arts

“Shadow Land” was conceived to accompany New Langton Arts’ exhibition “Real World”, a group of installations by young artists which open new perceptual understandings of the external world by playfully juxtaposing suggestions of the real and the false. These mostly recent films and videos juxtapose alternate personae and imagined landscapes, sometimes shadowing the real world, sometimes reflecting inner fantasies. Works include The Secret Story by Janie Geiser, Ellipsis by Lana Bernberg and Sabisha Friedberg, Lulu by Lewis Klahr, Back In The Saddle Again by Scott Stark, Bimbo’s Initiation by the Fleischer Brothers, Now Pretend by Leah Gilliam, Beets In A Blue Flowered Bowl by Fae Yamaguchi,Test by Tony Oursler and Tuning The Sleeping Machine by David Sherman.
