Anna Zett @ Videology Bar & Cinema, Nov 9

, 9 November 2015

Anna Zett‘s ‘This Unwieldy Objects’ (2014) film and ‘DINOSAUR.GIF’ (2014) video lecture are showing at New York’s Videology Bar & Cinema on November 9.

Presented by The New Inquiry, the event will be a US premiere of these two works by the Berlin-based artist exploring the construction of old and new mythologies through its replication and reanimation in fossils and dinosaurs; paleontology and CGI.

Recently showing as part of Serpentine galleries’ Extinction Marathon last year, and Helsinki’s Sorbus-galerie in March of this year, ‘This Unwieldy Objects: A Modern Research Drama’ presents the artist’s road trip into the heart of the United States, where the archeological data of natural history is reconstructed by fossil traders, sculptors and scientists around an Imperial ideology.

Similarly, ‘DINOSAUR.GIF’ explores a history of film and its role where “the spectacle of early animation and the paradoxical science of CGI meet in a screen recording.”.

See the Videology Bar & Cinema website for details.**
