// Videoscreening & Diskussion // Wir freuen, uns, am 14.1. Cate Giordano aus New York bei uns im ßpace begrüßen zu dürfen. Wir zeigen die nachfolgenden Videoarbeiten und lassen den Abend im lockeren Gespräch mit der Künstlerin ausklingen. Filmsprache: Englisch.Peg Bordelon Series (2013)Hunter in the Woods (2007)Species (2008)Prelude (2017)After the fire is gone (2017)"I shoot films, make sculpture, and perform in various states of cross dress. My films are melodramatic narratives that exist within loosely fabricated sculptural environments. These sculptures can be in the form of sets or characters and are made in a way that highlights their construction and materiality. I often play multiple roles in my films; the characters are usually archetypes dressed in ill-fitting costumes. Mustaches secured with masking tape and poorly fastened wigs show the transparency of the performance, making the drag itself into a sculptural gesture that highlights the gendered artifice of the narrative form."
