Invocations of the Luminiferous Æther: Expanded cinema @ the ICA // Paul Clipson + Brendan Murray // Magical Approach
July 11 (Sat) 12:00pm at ICA Boston

Balagan is pleased to present – along with Ricardo De Lima and the ICA, Boston – a program of two expanded cinema performances that challenge the perception of film as a static and unchanging medium or mere document of past artistic efforts. By introducing chance elements, both in the filming and the exhibition (which pairs live improvised sound to multi-layered 16mm projections), the performers draft the audience into the role of active participants; Unexpected mental connections are drawn between the disparate elements, mined from the depths of our collective unconscious and manifested as veritable waking dreams.
