Screen Series: Heather Phillipson
November 2, 2016 - February 12, 2017
In Phillipson’s carnivalesque videos, a collision of language, sound, and images assimilates the physical spaces in which we live and the digital realms we inhabit. Slippery narratives contort through fluctuating perspectives and modes of address, as well as through images and sounds from a dizzying range of sources—unique audio and video recordings are cut and layered with voiceovers, popular music, manufactured sound effects, assorted emojis, digital animations, and stock photography and video.
This presentation was part of the New Museum’s Screens Series, a platform for the presentation of new video works by emerging contemporary artists.
