About this project

Adult Movie is a new video project, currently in post-production, which will premiere in my upcoming solo show at Las Cienegas Projects, opening October 15th, 2011. 

Loosely inspired by Les Blank's documentary Burden of Dreams, which chronicles the myriad adversities faced during the making of Werner Herzog's Fitzcarraldo, Adult Movie explores the internal conflicts and struggles of art making, money making and adulthood through a non-linear, diaristic narrative, reflecting upon past work, my current experience as an artist in residence at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and my brief career as an exotic dancer at a lesbian strip club at age 30.

In conjunction with this new video, I will also present a series of digitally printed expressionistic "movie posters", created by scanning, enlarging and reprinting handmade collage works. The collage poster prints act as poetic storyboards and montaged moments, providing complements and alternate entry points to the narrative threads presented in Adult Movie.

Las Cienegas Projects is an artist-run curatorial project and gallery space which has limited available funds for production expenses.

Your contributions will support: Travel and shipping costs for transportation of artworks and artist from NYC to LA, printing and framing costs for the digitally printed "movie posters" which will be exhibited along side the video, expenses related to the installation of the work, and the printing and mailing expenses for promotional materials.

Thank you in advance!!!
