Thursday, March 25, 6-9 pm
Location: Headquarters: 1003 E Fayette Street, Apt 10 (enter thru back door)

Description: Chelsea Knight ( ) and Austin Shull ( ) are two New York based video artists. They have collaborated on a new video installation piece called Acting Out, which will be on view for one night only.

“The video explores the inheritance of specific forms and structures of confinement. Working with ten actors and a director inside the Skowegan Jail, the artists record the rehearsal of Ubu Roi, an early 20th century political parody play and precursor to the Theater of the Absurd. The rehearsals and performances by the actors highlight the arbitrary and farcical nature of our systems of confinement and incarceration.”

Chelsea and Austin will be visiting artists in Time Arts at SU.  Their installation coincide with the opening of the Sensational Remix, the Matrilinage exhibition at Spark .
