The Kitchen will present the U.S. premiere of BAND, Adam Pendleton’s new three-channel video installation. Pendleton’s BAND is a form-and-content refashioning of Jean-Luc Godard’s Sympathy for the Devil, which stands in open contrast to the earlier film. BAND tracks the indie rock band Deerhoof working on and recording a new song, I Did Crimes for You over the course of a day during the Toronto International Film Festival in 2009. Using the structure and techniques of avant-garde film as a means to explore ideas about contemporary experimental practice, language and the (re)making of history, BAND acts as a meditation on the present, read backwards through the canonical traces of history. The exhibition also features new wall-based works from Pendleton’s ongoing System of Display series.
