“The visual rhythm of the work is subtle and complex,” curator N. Elizabeth Schlatter wrote about my three-channel video installation “trance_siberia”. It creates a flowing experience for the viewer, that, “at times encourages daydreaming and relaxation”.
The psychological concept of flow is at the heart of the exhibition “Flow, Just Flow: Variations on a Theme”, which is on view in the Joel and Lila Harnett Museum of Art, University of Richmond Museums, VA, from January 29 to June 28, 2013.
“trance_siberia”, a piece which lasts for 3 hours, initially was shown with live sound at the MAK in Vienna. It experienced a spectacular outdoor screening at the Peristil in the ruins of Diocletian’s Palace, in the course of the Split Festival of New Film.
Addendum: Lena Lapschina’s artist’s talk at the Harnett Museum of Art, on Monday, March 4, 2013, noon to 1 p.m., has been made possible with a grant from the Austrian Cultural Forum, Washington, D.C.
