Finally, We Are All Young Again: Adam Caillier and Michael Mott
Movie: Scott Nedrelow
Minneapolis, July 21, 2011—Two new multiple-medium exhibitions from the Minnesota Artists Exhibition Program (MAEP) feature works by local artists Adam Caillier, Michael Mott and Scott Nedrelow, who consider photography, video, and repetition. On view through October 2, the exhibitions kick off with an opening reception at the MIA’s MAEP galleries Thursday, July 21 at 7 p.m.
“Finally, We Are All Young Again,”a collaboration between Adam Caillier and Michael Mott, includes a 3D “library” in which images of books cover bookshelves, each binding printed with an alternate title to the exhibition and to the works within it. Also included are slide projections from the artists’ footage of dance rehearsals and photographs of houses, trees, and teenagers. This overlapping and repetition of images reflects the artists’ interest in photography and research, as well as interactive installations.
Scott Nedrelow’s experimental six-channel video and sound installation, “Movie,” consists of a specific clip he recorded with a video camera during numerous visits to movie theaters. The film containing these samples is projected onto the gallery wall simultaneously with the soundtrack to mimic the movie-theater experience. “Movie” uses repetition and fragmentation to disrupt our expectations of a movie-theater experience.
Generous support for MAEP is provided by The McKnight Foundation and the Jerome Foundation.
