The Power Plant
Opening Reception: Mar 23 2012
The Power Plant presents a major solo exhibition of work by Los Angeles-based artist Kerry Tribe. Contextualizing a new project through a selection of past works, the exhibition Speak, Memory offers insight into Tribe’s ongoing interest in memory and the history and apparatus of film. Engaging image, text and sound, Tribe’s work considers cognition, typically revealing its content through a kind of structural storytelling. Often working with multiple projections and timed loops, her use of the literal mechanics of the moving image suggests that the medium is capable of mirroring processes of comprehension, memory and doubt.
Seeing its Canadian premiere at The Power Plant, Tribe’s new project There Will Be ________ (2012) is a film that approaches the history of Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills. The installation of There Will Be ________ will be accompanied by two older works: H.M. (2009) and Parnassius mnemosyne (2010), and by her performance Critical Mass (2010–11), which will be staged in conjunction with the 25th Images Festival on April 18.
