In this program of short films, BAMcinématek presents selections of work by performance art iconoclast Jacolby Satterwhite alongside recent Art21 New York Close Up documentaries revealing his process. In Satterwhite’s “uncommonly elastic imagination” (The New York Times), 3D animated characters perform wordless scenes of transformation and desire. Constructing digital worlds through stream-of-consciousness architecture, Satterwhite draws from a personal mythology that fuses familial obsessions, pop culture, and art history. Dressed in elaborate costumes adorned with electronic devices, Satterwhite’s avatar bounds from the screen in licentious live performances. His Reifying Desire series creates a virtual arena to explore the connections between his mother’s drawing and his current practice, and features music by Ghouls.
