Late & Soon (Occident Trotting)
Opening on Saturday, December 11th, the gallery will present a video installation entitled "Late and Soon" by the Los Angeles based artist Diana Thater. "Late and Soon", which will be the artists first solo exhibition in New York, consists of two separate video projections.
The first one will utilize a single three-lens video projector to spill a horizontal image over the entrance area and onto the front window. The window, which the artist will coat with a neutral film gel, will act as a screen for the projected image while still allowing light to enter into the gallery space. Thus the image will be viewable from the inside and the outside of the gallery. This projection will run 24 hours a day enabling viewers to see it at any time. The three-lens video projector will be set out of register, so that the three lenses will not match up perfectly. This will make the image break down into its component parts: red, blue, and green. Thus the image will be visible and readable but at the same time multiple. What is one will break down into three.
