For their fourth collaborative film project Lily Ludlow and Allen Cordell present Sowing Circle. The installation consists of three large projections surrounding a table set with the remnants of a gathering. The viewer is both voyeur and participant at an impromptu meeting of nine women. One at a time they whisper to each other something vital; a secret we can’t hear. The camera lingers as each is caught in a daydream- a slight pause from the moment happening, an elicitation of a memory. These visions are creases into the other sides of their lives which, while seeming mundane (the sweeping of leaves, the chopping of onion), are also potentially sublime.

Also on exhibit is Ms. Ludlow’s new series of erotic paintings.

This exhibition is made possible, in part, by Mangusta Collection. Mangusta is committed to furthering multi-channel video art.
