Lewis Klahr: Dreaming Over the Flux of Things Past

Prolix Satori, USA, 2008-10, 77.5 minutes, digital video

Master collagist Lewis Klahr returns to REDCAT with a new series, Prolix Satori. A departure for him, the series is both open-ended and ongoing, with a variety of thematic focuses, and will include a combination of very short works (under a minute) and feature-length films. It will also function as an umbrella for various sub-series. This program offers seven digital films from Prolix Satori, including five pieces from “The Couplets”: Wednesday Morning Two A.M. (2009, 6:30 min.), Sugar Slim Says (2010, 7 min., with music by Mark Anthony Thompson performed by Chocolate Genius), Nimbus Smile (2009, 8:30 min.), Nimbus Seeds (2009, 8:30 min.), and Cumulonimbus (2010, 9:30 min.). “The Couplets” are generally structured around the pairing of pop melodies and the theme of romantic love as expressed in the songs’ lyrics. Also screening: False Aging (2008, 15 min.) and Lethe (2009, 23 min.).

In person: Lewis Klahr

Curated by Steve Anker and Bérénice Reynaud.
