Overview

Super 8
January 26 - June 24  •  Upstairs Galleries

Super 8 is an artist-curated video art exhibition organized by the Los Angeles-based Christopher Grimes Gallery. Eight artists from eight different cities across the globe were invited to present their own videos and, in addition, invite four other artists from their respective cities to present works as well. A total of 40 artists from Berlin, Dublin, Lisbon, London, Los Angeles, Rio de Janeiro, San Francisco, and Tokyo are represented in the project. A unique feature of Super 8 is that this collection of diverse work in one-, two- and three-channel formats, selected through a peer-to-peer curatorial process, accumulates into a serial format exhibition with a global scope. The diverse selection of videos include Brazilian artist Thiago Rocha Pitta’s Homage to JMW Turner, a performative video honoring British Romantic painter Joseph Mallord William Turner; Los Angeles-based artist Euan Macdonald’s The Healer, which questions the illusion of the recorded image; and Dublin-based artist Jaki Irvine’s The Actress, which addresses issues of the human condition. The artists/curators are Marco Brambilla, Takehito Koganezawa, Reynold Reynolds, Julião Sarmento, Tunga, Richard T. Walker, Walker and Walker, and Wood & Harrison. Additional invited artists include John Baldessari, Nate Boyce, Yuki Okumura, and João Onofre.

Artist Bio

BERLIN

Reynold Reynolds (Curator)
Reynold Reynolds is an artist and filmmaker who is acutely influenced by philosophy and science. After receiving bachelor’s degree in physics from the University of Colorado at Boulder, his focus changed to studio art and he completed an MFA at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.

Reynold Reynolds primarily works with 16mm as an art medium. His film work is based on transformation, consumption and decay. By subtly altering the regular conditions of life and watching their effects, he transfers the experimental methods of science to filmmaking, where he frames reality in his laboratory and changes one variable at a time to reveal an underlying causality. Reynold Reynolds was awarded the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship in 2003. In 2004 he was invited to The American Academy in Berlin with a studio at Kunstlerhaus Bethanien for one year. Reynolds has received numerous awards for his film work, including the Festival Award for “Secret Life” at the European Media Art Festival Osnabrueck, 2008, the ‘09 Distinction Award for “Six Apartments” at Transmediale Berlin and Mention spéciale du jury, “Last Day of the Republic” at Videoformes, 2011.

SAN FRANCISCO

Richard T. Walker
Richard T. Walker's tender and provocative videos are part romantic meditation, part confessional love letter. Walker lays bare and challenges the presumption that the natural world revolves around us. A series of shots depicting boulders, bushes, trees and cacti from the Californian desert are presented to the viewer as a story is heard about someone becoming overwhelmed by these individual beauties. Then culminating into a multi-layered piece of music whereby the artist plays various instruments and sings. Walker is a British artist currently living and working in San Francisco.

He received an MFA from Goldsmiths, University of London in 2005. International group exhibitions include: Don Quijote, Witte de With, Rotterdam; Romantic Damage, De Appel, Amsterdam; Beyond The Country, The Lewis Glucksman Gallery, Cork; Terminus, Para/Site, Hong Kong; and Meditators, at the National Museum in Warsaw.
