The final scene from Casablanca is sliced in half, then quartered, then again, and again. Each slice of image slides gently away from the next over time, creating oddly cubist images out of the faces of Claude Rains, Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.

As You Pass By (2014) digital file, color, 10:36 min

Genre: Documentary

Keywords: history, landscape and architecture

Made with Amanda L. Katz.

As You Pass By commences an exploration of the Brooklyn - Queens Expressway, an infamous highway in New York City that slices through the two named boroughs. We pause in Woodside, Queens to observe one of the many spaces that have been sacrificed in order to create and maintain the utopian image of New York City on the opposite side of the East River. What we see is the beautiful way in which one New York citizen activates a seemingly derelict stretch of land.

El hombre de posguerra. Trilogía. Estudio sobre el movimiento / Post war man. Trilogy. Study about movement. (2014-2017) digital file, 8 mm, color, 3-4 min

Genre: Documentary, Experimental

Keywords: arts & artists, environment & nature , philosophical , political & social activism, queer/bi/trans, structural

The trilogy Study about movement explores the tensions that occur between figures, forms and color when summed together in layers, in an almost chancy way. The work tries to capture the vital and invisible forces, the pure movement, as the one present in a sensation.  I chose two main tools to work with: the overexposure of layers in the same negative film and the use of primary colors. Post war man is the third work done under these premises. In this case, the exploration has been about bodies in movement, about the forces that one makes towards the other, the friction between meat and bones, against a predominantly red background. During the shot of this short film I was reading “Logic of sensation” by Deleuze. This inspired me to work with male bodies in contact, may be in a wrestle, may be in a dance, mixed together with the emblematic painting "Three studies for figures at the base of a crucifixion" by Francis Bacon. I believe this work is still in progress since I would like to intervene it, by painting the film with a thick layer of paint that would partly cover the image below it. River bank and Tides are the other works that complete this trilogy.

Irma Vep, The Last NIght (2014) DVD, color, 35 min

Genre: Narrative, Experimental, Installation

Keywords: Arts & Artists, Body, Erotic, Films about Films, Philosophical, Queer/Bi/Trans

"Irma Vep, the last breath" is a multichannel video project based on Musidora, the French silent film actress, and the character she is best known for, Irma Vep from the film Les Vampires (dir. Louis Feuillade 1915). It's a piece about living in the shadows, criminal anxiety and the relationship between the artist and her creation, both fictional and real. Irma Vep and Musidora are played by Zackary Drucker and Mother Flawless Sabrina, two artists who have developed a relationship that transgresses the border of art and life, obliterating social expectations while documenting a cultural evolution of gender. This project mirrors their relationship with that of Musidora and Irma Vep, taking up motifs from the silent movie such as gazes, affected body language and the figure of the masked woman. Shot on a starkly illuminated set that makes space for anxious projections of desire and knowledge on the void that is Irma Vep - a space between the genders, between vamps of the silent era and the contemporary queer - 'Irma Vep, the last breath" smashes the shiny veneer of artifice to reveal dark, subconscious layers of identity

A photograph of a demonstration in Trafalgar Square which I took sometime in the 1970s (and which has been taped to my studio wall since then) comes very slowly into focus, accompanied by the sound of helicopters hovering overhead.

Trafalgar Square is overlooked by the National Gallery. I've no recollection of thinking this at the time, but it seems I chose to focus on 3 figures who would not look out of place in the background of any number of 16th or 17th century paintings that hang in the gallery.

'After RH' refers to Richard Hamilton's 1970 screenprint series 'Kent State'.

Genre: Documentary

Keywords: arts & artists, biography & autobiography

Director: Danielle de Picciotto
Production & Sound: Alexander Hacke
Editing: Sylvia Steinhauser

**Special edition DVD featuring one of Lary 7's unique 5x7" black and white silver photographic prints, signed by the artist. Limited edition of 4.**

A film about New York musician, multi-instrumentalist, producer, sound artist, filmmaker and photographer Lary 7.

Lary 7 - founder of the Plastikville Records label and studio, student of Tony Conrad, Paul Sharits and Hollis Frampton, and a perennial figure of the New York music scene since the early 1980s - is finally seen, heard and celebrated as never before in this film exploration of his important work.

The immense wit and pure outrageousness of Lary 7's presentations and performances makes each one an unpredictable, sometimes strange event, often with an atmosphere of deliberate absurdity, and where audience expectations are tweaked and toyed with.

Lary 7 has collaborated with countless music icons for more than three decades: Michael Gira, Tom Verlaine, Jarboe, Foetus, Tony Conrad, Alexander Hacke, Larry Mullins, Dorit Chrysler, Jacob Kirkegaard, Ken Montgomery, Michael Evans and Gordon Monahan.

Featuring Interviews with: Lary 7, Tony Conrad, Fabio Roberti, Bill Bronson, Michael Evans, Jarboe, Lydia Lunch, Jim Sclavunos, D. Sparks, Matthew Barney, Jim Thirlwell, Gary Ray, Jimi Tenor, Alexander Hacke, Bradley Eros, Gordon Monahan, Laura Kikauka, Dorit Chrysler, Larry Mullins, Jutta Koether.

“NOT JUNK YET - The Art of Lary 7 features never-before-seen interviews, performances, collaborations and conversations with Lary 7 and his fellow artists on the New York art & music scenes, giving us an intimate glimpse into the modus operandi, working concepts and sound and image experimentations of a man who has survived independent of the music industry for decades - influencing and inspiring all that have met him.” -Vance Whitestone & Jim Sharpe, New York City, 2014

UNITED IN ANGER: A HISTORY OF ACT UP combines startling archival footage that puts you on the ground with the activists and remarkably insightful interviews from the ACT UP Oral History Project to explore ACT UP (the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power) from a grassroots perspective - how a small group of men and women of all races and classes, came together to change the world and save each others lives. The film takes the viewer through the planning and execution of a half-dozen exhilarating major actions including Seize Control of the FDA, Stop the Church, and Day of Desperation, with a timeline of many of the other zaps and actions that forced that U.S. government and mainstream media to deal with the AIDS crisis, while revealing the group's complex culture - meetings, affinity groups, and approaches to civil disobedience mingle with profound grief, sexiness, and the incredible energy of ACT UP.

Three realities are represented: the landscape viewed through the window, rain patterns on the glass, and the interior of the car. The first two realities become visible as a result of where the camera is focused, the third when parts of the interior are seen and when the rain quiets and sounds made inside are heard.

Caught by another "spectator's" camera, visitors observe, enjoy, or ignore their surroundings - one of the worlds most infamous, yet beloved structures. The camera shows us odd angles and what is not usually revealed. Meanwhile, the memory of spectators of antiquity and what they witnessed casts a shadow. In this hybrid-documentary a soundtrack of location recordings augmented by scripted voices recreates the cacophony of languages heard and allows the sounds of the modern city outside to intrude.

Keywords: arts & artists, biography & autobiography, body, dance, erotic, pesonal diary journal, philosophical, psychology mental health, queer bi trans, spiritual mystical, technology

Performative Super 8 manipulation to Digital Projection. Saudade is a word in Portuguese and Galician that claims no direct translation in English. It describes a deep emotional state of nostalgic or profound melancholic longing for an absent something or someone. It often carries a repressed knowledge that the object of longing might never return. Its the recollection of feelings, experiences, places or events that once brought excitement, pleasure, well-being, which now triggers the senses and makes one live again. It can be described as an emptiness, like someone or something that should be there in a particular moment is missing, and the individual feels this absence. It brings sad and happy feelings all together, sadness for missing and happiness for having experienced the feeling. Through each showing, the film is manipulated live through a series of analog to digital processes. Originally a performance ritual act where the artist tries to control their body through a single repetitive motion and documented in Super 8mm. Inspired by the process of film, Saudade becomes a hypnotic trance of the moving body as an internal dialog of intentions, desires and experiences are exposed. Each film screening is unique and highlights different aspects of the film. PHOTOSENSITIVITY WARNING. Camera: Nung-Hsin Hu

The Age of Animals (2014) DVD NTSC, Color, min

Genre: Experimental, Installation

Keywords: environment and nature, science medicine, spiritual mystical, technology

The Age of Animals (2014)... features contemporary video footage Biermann shot in the Museum of Natural History in Manhattan, the Vatican, and the Bronx Zoo. However, Biermann applies manipulations to this footage, producing a complex three-dimensional illusion in which foreground and background are forever trading places. Indeed, the visual experience of this film is akin to being trapped inside an M.C. Escher painting or riding a rollercoaster after taking a hallucinogen. Yet we can still see the documentary world though these disorienting distortions. In the Museum of Natural History, we see visitors looking at taxidermic animals lost to extinction along with the skeletons and footprints of dinosaurs and other bygone species. A sign reading "What makes the Earth habitable?" spins by, implying the fact that the Earth could very well become uninhabitable. In the Vatican, we see tourists videotaping and photographing the soaring ceilings dedicated to the Creator of animals according to Christian theology. The opposition between the spaces of the natural history museum and the church is emphasized through the soundtrack. This alternates between a repeated segment of sampled choral music, silence, and a recorded interview with paleontologist Peter Ward who laments the politics surrounding the discourse on global warming and evolution as well as the misguided notion that previous mass extinctions were caused only by asteroids and not by changing temperatures. The space of the Bronx Zoo, framed by the soundtrack and the other two spaces, reads not as a space of joyful childhood discovery, but rather as the last living relics of the coming mass extinction caused by human ingenuity and greed. Despite the visual distortions, we recognize tortoises, gorillas, giraffes, birds, and so on, but they, too, are barely recognizable in that they suddenly read as the last of their kind. Whether these animals are the product of supreme Creator or evolution becomes irrelevant if they are doomed to disappear. The very title of the film "Age of Animals" implies that the age can end, that there may soon be an age without animals. This film suggests that in the political opposition between science and religion, the casualties are entire species - perhaps all of them. As a whole, Gregg Biermann's recent work suggests a sense of the overwhelming in a historical moment in which we are disoriented visually, sonically, socially, politically, and even biologically. It reflects and refracts the sense that, even as we attempt to make sense of the contemporary world, it continues to shift, becoming a foreign and unfamiliar territory. In Biermann's work, as in contemporary life, our landmarks are constantly shifting, forcing us to find new ways of locating ourselves in a spatial and temporal situation that is ever slipping beyond our mind's grasp. - Jaimie Baron

The trilogy Study about movement explores the tensions that occur between figures, forms and color when summed together in layers, in an almost chancy way. The work tries to capture the vital and invisible forces, the pure movement, as the one present in a sensation.  I chose two main tools to work with: the multiple exposure of layers in the same negative film and the use of primary colors. Tides is the second part of the trilogy. Water never dies, always transforms itself, rebirths in rivers, bodies, oceans. Huge, kneads its potential energy in the permanence of movement. River Bank and Post war man are the other two works that complete the Trilogy.

I chose two main tools to work with: the multiple exposure of layers in the same negative film and the use of primary colors. River bank was the first work of the series. In this work I counterpoised the movement, light and color of two different spaces that are being seen by the same observer. A trip to Delta del Tigre, Buenos Aires and a highway trip. Both melt under an extreme slow motion of the images. Post War man and Tides are the following works of the trilogy.

"A walker understands gradually that he does not know much about the turbulent and airy flow of the spirit. Or he is incapable of defining it. Nevertheless, he connects with it every time he discovers that his own person constitutes a fragile material structure in the hands of nature’s fluctuations, far from social intermediaries. However, he adapts his definition of “natural” to the changes of his own mind: today is freezing because I freeze, tomorrow the sun burns because I dry out".

Keywords: arts & artists, films about film, structural, technology

PLAY AND REPEAT is a technological rendering of a cityscape and the experience therein. A sequence of altered still images shot in New York is repeated, each time manipulated and layered over the artifacts of the previous sequence. Images of concrete and pavement are digitally smeared, transmogrifying the architectural structure of the street. Billboards and graffiti become the passage of color and texture through the 2-dimensional space of the screen. play and repeat takes both the city and digital video itself as subject and explores the effect of the addition and removal of the representational image on perception and memory. Composition, color and movement give way to accumulation and eventual disintegration into its own ephemerality.
