Moving Image : An Art Fair of Contemporary Video Art
New York, NY, March 3-6, 2011

Thursday - Saturday, March 3-5, 2011: 11 am - 8 pm
Sunday, March 6, 2011: 11 am - 3 pm

Moving Image is very pleased to announce the the list of participating artists and galleries for its inaugural exhibition, including 35 artists represented by 30 galleries from the US and Europe. With 29 single-channel videos and 7 larger scale video sculpture/installations, Moving Image has been conceived to offer viewers a unique viewing experience, providing a rich program of time-based work from around the globe by today's most important and exciting new artists.
Highlights of the program include historical works by David Wojnarowicz (1954 –1992) and by Hannah Wilke (1940 - 1993).  Presented by New York's PPOW GalleryWojnarowicz's 1981 silent work Heroin is one of the few films the artist completed. Transfered to video from its original 8mm format, it depicts the adverse use of heroin in New York City in the early 1980's. Ronald Feldman Fine Arts is presenting Wilke's 1978 video Intercourse with..., which has been described as "a haunting performance in which the viewer "eavesdrops" on a on a series of phone messages in tended for Wilke, recorded from her answering machine." (1)

Also presented is an earlier video by Hiraki Sawa (who currently has an exhibition at James Cohan Gallery's New York location). Sawa's highly acclaimed video Dwelling (2002) was filmed entirely in his London apartment and yet seems to follows the chaotic flight patterns of jets and planes (shot with miniatures, the work has been described as "closer to masterful cinema than to experimental video." (2)
New work debutting at Moving Image includes Blood Sacrifice (2011), a video by Genesis Breyer P-Orridge presented by New York's Invisible-Exports. Blood Sacrifice is a valentine to a love both lost and enduring. The video, of two Chanel No. 5 perfume bottles filled with blood, is presented in three views. One bottle slowly crumbles and leaks its contents onto the bandage-like muslin below. The liquid slowly spreads, eventually reaching over and encircling the intact bottle. The blood in each bottle is real. The intact bottle contains that of Lady Jaye Breyer, the first gift given to Genesis P-Orridge as their courtship began. The second bottle contains Genesis' blood from her breast implant, given to Lady Jaye a few years later. Also making its debut is Alex Mirutziu's Runway Spills #2 (2011), presented byCluj-Napoca, Romania's SABOT Gallery. In Mirutziu's video of fashion models, there is a diffusion of focus away from the garment and onto a situation that disrupts a specific convention (falling on the catwalk).

Among the installations presented will be Exploded View by Jim Campbell, presented by New York's Bryce Wolkowitz GalleryCampbell's installation is a grid  made up of approximately 1152 LEDs. Campbell takes a traditional two-dimensional surface and pulls it apart into a three dimensional grid.  Exploded View physically takes an image display apart, forcing the viewer to rely on perception and memory as a means to understand its logic. The Pace Gallery presents two installations, including TV Man (2010) by Corban Walker who will represent Ireland at the 2011 Venice Biennale. Walker has described TV Man as "me watching you watching you watching me watching you watching you watching." Also presented by The Pace Gallery is Michal Rovner's June (2004) in which "calligraphy” images comprised of dozens of figures moving are projected from the top of a vitrine onto a notebooks.
