Operation Rewrite Exhibition in Dublin
Here's the official announcement:
Esperanza Collado & Maximilian Le Cain
29 September – 29 October 2011
Opening & artists' talk: Thursday 29 September 2011, 6pm.
Esperanza Collado and Maximilian Le Cain explore the workings of the cut and the interruption as fundamental associative principles of cinematographic montage in a diversity of artworks. ‘Operation Rewrite’s multidisciplinary nature allows it to trace the fault lines between cinema and the inevitably ruptured articulation of language. This rhizomatic art project takes its name from a chapter of William S. Burroughs’ novel ‘Nova Express’, where the author describes his subversive ‘Cut-Up’ method, the aim of which is to explode the disaffecting ‘parasite organism’ commonly known as language. In ‘Operation Rewrite’, the wide use of black screen and of spaces ‘in negative’ (not in the sense of negation, but of inversion, crack or leak) become machines of affection, places for expropriation and the radical displacement of meaning.
This exhibition has been made possible by the support of MUSAC (Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y Léon) and Cork Film Centre.
