Join us for the WORLD PREMIERE VIDEO of “ARE YOU?“ and other shorts by Kim Miskowicz.
Drawing from her video archive of references for her 2-dimensional work, Miskowicz weaves the sublime with reminders of its impermanence such as listening to crickets at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon interrupted by the starting of a car. In this intimate program of moving images, Kim Miskowicz explores cognitive and physical place, animated found imagery, pulsating landscapes, privacy and video fragments within a variety of formats.
Screening will include films and videos spanning nearly a decade of other compositional musings and nostalgic speculations on points in space. See new cell phone camera generations of “XU Extract,” in celebration of it’s 11th birthday, a generationally updated and downgraded video that chases conversions of moving image formats, with each new generation containing a small part of the first.

“My work focuses on a response to material and data overload creating breaks in continuous thoughts similar to a building obstructing a view of a simple horizon. My paintings and films are inspired by the belief in therapeutic effects of viewing distant forms in the landscape. I use film and video as a multiplier and quick viewer of minutely varied compositions. I explore media and material absorption in relation to determining what of our personal, emotional and informational lives one preserves versus invalidates.”
