JOAN presents Slow Zoom Long Pause, a video by Sara Magenheimer.
September 12 – October 11, 2015
In Slow Zoom Long Pause, 2015, her most recent video, Magenheimer asks; What would it mean for form to have rhythm? It’s a question of physicality; an idea chafing against its embodiment. This work hovers in that space of friction between concept and material limitation; considering a human vessel – the “content” being somewhat begrudgingly resigned to it’s physical form. Color, too, possess a certain rhythm as wavelengths of the visible spectrum, but in this work the voice is central. The script traverses various modes of speech; hyperbolic, melodramatic, inquisitive, authoritative, sentimental – as it questions the rhythm of objects, the body as an object, the meaning of imaginary and “real” things, and what we can see versus only hear or feel. By the end it’s clear that the narrator’s voice is actually an embodied multiplicity of voices. She’s even doing a Q and A with herself.
Concurrent with this exhibition Slow Zoom Long Pause will also premiere theatrically at the New York Film Festival at Lincoln Center.
