GALLERY North/ANDREW NEUMANN • gallery south/Colin Chase
For his first solo show in six years, Andrew Neumann will be presenting a series of video projections, text panels, photographs and sculptures. These works reflect on issues concerning the uses of technology, language, and transmission of power in both its various corporeal and elusive modes. They re-contextualize the technologically derived icons and place them in a new environment that allows one to question their original use and see the possibilities of organizing these icons/objects into a new language with a completely re-defined hierarchy. The video projections consist of muti-channel loops that analyze short iconic scenes from classic films. The other projections are of performative works, in which the artist takes an active role in defining the action that is being projected.
Andrew Neumann is an American Artist who works primarily with time-based media, as well as text-based wall panels, and the combing disparate elements into hybrid sculptural pieces. He is also active as an electro/acoustic improvisor, working with both analog and digital synthesis. He is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, a LEF foundation grant, among other awards. He has three recordings on Sublingual Records, and a new CD forthcoming. Last year he was a resident at A-I-R , Krems Austria.

PERformance by Andrew Neumann
Sat. June 15, 7pm, $10 suggested donation at the door, seating is limited
Neumann will present a live, interactive video projection piece. This project was realized through a New Works Grant from Harvestworks. A hardware/software system was developed which allows for cutting between four discrete video channels, allowing it to serve as a “real-time optical printer” for the video image. He will be reworking (a polite phrase) various Hollywood dance epics from the 30’s and 40’s, found footage and incorporate a live performative element.
