Mind Officially Blown

A one-night screening of film and video programmed by Deirdre Logue

Thursday, November 20, 2008, 7:30 pm

Gallery TPW is thrilled to present a one-night screening programmed by Deirdre Logue. With Mind Officially Blown Logue recalls some of the best work from the last three years of the Oberhausen International Short Film Festival in Germany. Selected from the international distributors presentations, these works reflect a powerful visual and conceptual dynamic in experimental film and video — a reliance on dualities and contradictions. Like the festival itself, the works often encourage disparate parts to fit together, wearing each other into shape, asking us to consider bringing their parts together, joining surfaces to substances. Long after their exhibition at Oberhausen, these works have maintained an active place in Logue’s imagination and remain works that ask for a re-appreciation of film and video’s often curious combinations.
