Court Tree Collective proudly presents Still Here by Carroll Gardens artist Mark Street. Mr. Street brings a show of lightbox collages, a triptych video projection and a single channel loop projected weekly through the translucent upper window of Court Tree.
In his own words, “I like to work the surface of film to create rich visuals which I shape in a very intuitive, personal way. Since I started making films in 1983 I’ve always gone back to painting, bleaching and marking frames one by one; I am exhilarated by the tactile relationship with film material. I like the way these abstract films allow the viewer to be drawn into unfamiliar worlds.”
Mr Street has shown work in the New York Museum of Modern Art Cineprobe series (1991, 1994), at Anthology Film Archives (1993, 2006, 2009, 2012), Millennium (1990,1996), and the San Francisco Cinematheque (1986, 1992, 2009). His work has appeared at the Tribeca (5 times), Sundance, Rotterdam, New York, London, San Francisco, New York Underground, Sarajevo, Viennale, Ourense (Spain), Mill Valley, South by Southwest, and other film festivals.
The 7 minute loop from the street will be shown Monday, Wednesday and Saturday from 6pm – 8pm. Dates 3/21 to 4/4. The opening reception on March 21st will be a “lights off” exhibit. So the viewers can get a full presentation of the work.
