Margaret Haines: Recent Films
you face god and the camera at the same time, 2017 (10min) the stars down to earth, 2016 (24 min)Margaret Haines latest films are multifaceted meandering narratives riddled with philosophical investigation. Her shooting and editing style merges points of view, mixes staged scenes with improvised encounters. Haines’s frame oscillates between a myriad of traditional cinema styles, from hollywood fiction film to cinéma vérité, in the creation of a unique form. The films are rife with colliding references to the works of Jean Genet, Kate Millet, Adorno, and allusions to ancient Greek mythology, corporate america, celebrity culture, Astrology, and Thrasher magazine. The result is
an examination of culture and aesthetics that stretches the definitions of what is poetically and politically possible within the moving image art category of short film.
Hazel Hill McCarthy III: ANTHEM SERIES
Multidisciplinary artist Hazel Hill McCarthy III’s most recent sculptures, ANTHEM SERIES, are harmonized assemblages of objects from her personal archives and collections. Arranged in accordance with her abstract musings, these wall mounted works serve as a diary of the artist’s travels and travails, as well as a snapshot of our current political and cultural condition. The individual items included in the series range from the domestically familiar, as in a used lobster dog toy, to consumer kitsch, as with giftstore goods and american flag emblazoned trinkets, to culty collectibles like the infamous Terrorists Attack Trading Cards produced by Piedmont Candy Company in the late 1908s.
