For anyone interested in contemporary art there’s a new exhibit at the Linda Pace Foundation downtown. This exhibition consists of Eight, and Eighteen by Teresa Hubbard and Alexander Birchler as well as other video and photographic work. It is available for viewing from October 12, 2013 through March 29, 2014.
It all started with Eight which was presented at Artpace in 2002 and it revolves around an eight-year old girl staring out a window on a stormy night. As the action progresses time and space become blurred and the video ends up looping so it is difficult to tell which scene comes first. It has been presented in various exhibitions around the world has become one of the most recognized forms of video art.
In Eighteen Hubbard and Birchler used the same actor they used in Eight. It involves the same character during a similar scene during her eighteenth birthday party. As she moves from one place to another linear time, fact and fiction and the solidity of physical shelter slip around her. It is made up of steady and uninterrupted camera movements.
