Lewis Klahr Screening 2/26
posted:

FEBRUARY 26 (Sat.) LEWIS KLAHR
PROLIX SATORI (75 min.-2008-2010) - NYC PREMIERE IN ITS FULL SERIES FORM.
I have often worked in series before-"Picture Books For Adults", "Tales of the Forgotten Future", "Engram Sepals", "The Two Minutes to Zero Trilogy"-but never quite like this. The main difference is that "Prolix Satori" is both open ended with a variety of thematic focuses instead of a single, centralized one. As the series title suggests, it will include films that are very very short (under a minute) and films that are feature length. "Prolix Satori" will also contain various sub-series: this program offers several films from "The Couplets" ("Wednesday Morning Two A.M.", "Sugar Slim Says" and all 3 Nimbus films). "The Couplets" will generally, but not exclusively, organize themselves around the pairing of various pop songs and just as in the songs lyrics, the theme of romantic love. This screening marks the NYC premiere of the first completed sequence of this ongoing series. - L.K.

"I don't think of myself as an animator. I really am a collage artist, with all that implies: a need to explore the found materials, to explore history through those materials."--- Lewis Klahr
 Called the “reigning proponent of cut and paste” by critic J. Hoberman of the Village Voice, master collagist Lewis Klahr has been making films since 1977. He is known for his uniquely idiosyncratic experimental films and cutout animations which have been screened extensively in the United States and Europe. New York's Museum of Modern Art has purchased Klahr's films for their permanent collection, and curated three one-person shows with him since 1989. Klahr has also been included in the Biennial Exhibition of the Whitney Museum of American Art (1991 and 1995). His epic cutout animation THE PHARAOH'S BELT received a special citation for experimental work from the National Society of Film Critics in 1994. Klahr's shorts (ALTAIR, LULU and PONY GLASS) have been included in the New York Film Festival. LULU was commissioned by Copenhagen's Gronnegard's Theater production of Alban Berg's opera of the same name that opened to critical acclaim in August 1996. CALENDAR THE SIAMESE, Klahr's first linear narrative, was included in the 1997 New Directors/New Films series as a featurette. The Rotterdam Film festival commissioned Klahr to create Two Minutes to Zero for a series of 10 one minute films produced for the 2004 festival. Klahr is a 1992 Guggenheim Fellow and has also received funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, the NY State Council of the Arts, The Jerome Foundation, and the NY Foundation of the Arts and Creative Artists Public Services. Commercially he has created special effects and animation for television show openings, music videos, commercials, a documentary and a TV movie.
