December 14, 2012 - May 17, 2013
Reception: Friday, December 14, 7 - 9 PM
NURTUREart is pleased to present Videorover: Season 5, the fifth installment of its semi-annual video series. Curated by Rachel Steinberg, this season’s gallery selection features Artists: Matthew Cowan, Yael Frank, David J Merritt, Zach Nader, Jessica Segall, Adrien Siberchicot, and Frank Zadlo.
This exhibition celebrates the physical nature of video art through it’s relationship with objects. Whether depicting a time activated object or body, or the absence of an expected physical element, each work challenges the typical medium of moving images by presenting a product that is sculptural, not just transient. Although the video timeline creates the intrigue and impression with each piece, the medium of video itself is only a surrogate for a tactile interaction. This is as much an exhibition of objects as video; a guided tour of images and manipulated objects that form new situations and angles of observation.
Videorover is NURTUREart’s ever-expanding forum for local and international video artists, aiming to present a wide range of videos which are willing to extend the perceptual and conceptual limitations of their medium. Opening on Friday, December 14, 2012, the videos will be displayed simultaneously as an installation for a period of one week in the main gallery space. After this week, the videos will move to NURTUREart’s screening area and play on rotation of one video per day, running concurrently with the regular exhibition schedule for the duration of the season.
