Aziz + Cucher: Time of the Empress (septet)
Curated by Tami Katz-Freiman
November 21, 2013 – January 24, 2014
Artist Reception | December 2, 2013 | 7-10 pm
The Screening Room invites you to its upcoming show, a solo exhibition by the New York based duo Aziz + Cucher. This project is curated by Tami Katz-Freiman and is on view during Art Basel 2013.
Time of the Empress depicts animated drawings of modernist buildings in an infinite loop of construction and disintegration. These architectural renderings appear buoyant, suspended in a cycle of growth and dissolution, like Towers of Babel, simultaneously rising and collapsing. Paradoxically they also possess an inherent tranquility, evoking the patterns of our economy, of nature, and of life itself.
This video installation consists of seven large flat-screen panels that hang from the ceiling. This work was originally part of a larger solo exhibition by the artists called “Some People” which was commissioned by the Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA) in 2012.
The Screening Room is a new media exhibition and project space located in Miami’s Wynwood Art District. Video artist, filmmaker and Miami native Rhonda Mitrani recognized a need in the community for a multi-disciplinary space dedicated to film and video programs, lectures and gatherings.
