Whitespace presents ground.loop. a 4 channel video/sound design installation
by Bill Orisich + Benita Carr on Saturday, January 13th, 2018 through Saturday, February 10th, 2018.
OPENING RECEPTION SATURDAY, JANUARY 13TH 7-10pm
ground.loop. is an existential journey and a modern day fairy tale. A search for connectedness and meaning and by extension a question about the relevance of art and the making thereof in the 21st century. The repetition and ritual of daily life with it’s drone and hum, the comfort and burden of it all and ultimate unknowingness. Through comic absurdity and solemnity (gravity) and a nod to Sartre, the work grapples with the pursuit of being.
Bridging experimental filmmaking with its non-narrative structure and elements specific to installation art, the work incorporates multi-channel videos, spoken word, sound design, and performance to create an immersive experience altering the viewers’ perception of space and awareness of self.
ground.loop. includes the participation and collaboration of several artists:
Dennis Coburn, Debra Hiers, poetry
Shana Robbins and Marianne, performance
Tre McClendon, tap
Jamel Morris, Shana Cohen, Tera Buerkle, vocals
