The Migrating Forms Film Festival Opens with Ryan Trecartin's New Movies Tonight
Andrea Rosen Gallery and Regen Projects are thrilled for the US premier of Ryan Trecartin's new movies:CENTER JENNY (US, 2013), Comma Boat (US, 2013), Item Falls (US, 2013), and Junior War, which will open the fifth annual Migrating Forms film festival at BAMcinématek tonight, December 11th.
Excerpt from BAMcinématek press release: "Trecartin has been described by The New Yorker's Peter Schjeldahl as 'the most consequential artist to have emerged since the 1980s.' Originally presented in installation form at the 55th Venice Biennale, these four new movies expand on Trecartin's deep preoccupations with language and the formation of community while rendering (and lampooning) the existential traumas of seeking personal agency and identity in an age of infinite optionality. Part social science fiction, part formalist tour de force, each short revolves around an ensemble, ranging from the artist's high school classmates-which he shot 15 years ago as a teenager (Junior War)-to an ornate caste system of dozens of meta-reality show aspirants named Jenny and their authoritarian minders (CENTER JENNY). Trecartin will appear in person for the screening, which is co-presented by Andrea Rosen Gallery and Regen Projects."
