For his exhibition at Momenta Art, James Fotopoulos will present two videos: Spine Face and Pig. Both pieces were made in 2005. Spine Face combines props, masked/naked figures, animation, processed images, a male/female figure, and voiceover of biblical/invented text. The effect is one of a profound inner voice grappling with the mundanity of desire and an endless epiphany of spiritual connection. The present becomes the eternal recurring. In Pig, a pig eats a dead soldier in Kosovo and then is shot itself. Abject yet heartbreaking, both works rise out from a reiteration of images and texts that is both familiar in a wider cultural sense yet at the same time deeply idiosyncratic.
