Video artist Rachel Rose’s canny, appropriative montages take the metrics of mortality as their principal subject. Her work is omnivorous in its appetite for sounds and textures specific to the various forms of media that comprise a contemporary worldview. 

In this program, she presents three recent videos: A Minute Ago (9min, US, 2014), in which a freak hailstorm obliterating a perfect beach day is juxtaposed with the peacefulness of Philip Johnson’s Glass House during a Connecticut downpour; Palisades in Palisades (9min, US, 2014), which is set inside a Revolutionary War oil painting and depicts the infinitesimal details of, presumably, a girl’s modern-day visit to the same shores of the Hudson River; and Sitting Feeding Sleeping (10min, US, 2013), whose protagonists are exotic animals held in captivity, performing these eponymous actions as a means of demonstrating life. 

Screens with a clip from Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii (13min, 1972), a source for Rose’s video A Minute Ago, which finds the band playing live among the ruins, and T.Z. (9min, US, 1979, 16mm), Robert Breer’s classic of avant-garde animation set in Nyack, NY, and overlooking the Palisades.
