Performance: Lucy Raven, ON LOCATION
25 February 2017, 18:00
The work of the American artist Lucy Raven focuses on the edges of image production, what happens behind the camera, in-between frames or within post-production. In this newest iteration of her ongoing talk series On Location, Lucy Raven traces the spaces of image industries in which film and animation pictures are processed, reformed, and recombined. Large parts of films produced in Hollywood are today outsourced, often to countries in Southeast Asia. After the enormous success of the re-release of Titanic in a new 3D-technology in 2012, other film companies re-released much newer films, such as 2012, digitally re-worked in Beijing, China. The lecture follows the developing technologies and infrastructures through which landscapes, locations, and stereoscopic spaces are constructed today.
Lucy Raven was born in Tucson, Arizona in 1977 and lives in New York. Her exhibition Edge of Tomorrow was recently on view at the Serpentine Galleries, London.
Lucy Raven: On Location is a post-scriptum to the exhibition John Skoog and Emanuel Röhss: MAD HORIZON. With support from Kungl. Konsthögskolan, Stockholm.
