The In-Between Cosmos of Katherine Bauer – Program 1

  • 17.10, 18:00Paderewski

In the presence of Katherine Bauer

As part of an expanded screening setup featuring Katherine Bauer’s precious work on 16mm films, LUFF dedicates a focus to this artist at the crossroads between cinema and installation. Several films will be presented, including an original piece: as many testimonies of the filmmaker’s oniric cosmos, between exploration of myth and folklore, erotism and nature. This cinerama will articulate itself with a carte blanche to the New York Film-Maker’s Coop of which Katherine is none other but co-president.

Looped projection, free access

Katherine Bauer works primarily with celluloid film and cinematic structure in its material potential for sculpture, photography, installation and live performance. Much of Bauer’s work involves mythologies, folklores, and female subjectivity as told through the means of visual media archaeology. Her work has been screened and performed across the United States and internationally at venues and institutions. Bauer’s solo exhibitions have been reviewed in Artforum, photograph magazine, and The Village Voice, among others. Bauer holds a BA in Film and Electronic Arts from Bard College and a MFA from New York University. She is a member of the New York based expanded cinema collective Optipus. Her films are distributed by The Film-Makers’ Cooperative of New York, for which she also serves as the Co-President of the Board of Directors. She is represented by Microscope Gallery in New York andis based in the Hudson Valley, New York.

Final part of the Crystallus apocalyptic epic, the film articulates narrative and chemical functions of crystalization : the manual and sensitive work on the film delight the gaze.

Cenote Dissolve

Katherine Bauer, 2016, USA
Triple 16mm looped projection, Color, Silent, 4’

A 16mm triptych reveals transfigured quaries (cenotes are natural pits) : abstract shots, scratches and negative gleams sublimate the experience of these ordinary spaces.
