'Body and Flesh': The Tactile Cinema of Luther Price at REDCAT
REDCAT: "Luther Price is Brakhage after Punk." —Light Industry
Luther Price’s painstakingly handcrafted films and slides are truly one of a kind as the artist layers viscerally distressed found film strips with provocative images, anarchic visual patterns, dirt, mold and other detritus in a sensuous, even ecstatic, vision of entropy and mortality—inscribed directly onto the film medium. Price’s uncompromising work has been presented at storefront cinemas, underground performance venues and, in recent years, museums such as MoMA and the Whitney. The program features two slide projection pieces, including Light Fractures (2013), several Super 8 films, and a new 16mm film.
