MAIDEN LA Biennial

Film premiere of “Creation Scenes”

From the artist’s “Lost Tapes” series comes “Creation Scenes,” based on footage misplaced for almost twenty years and recently re-discovered.

Using traditional film techniques like scratching the emulsion with a needle, splicing and taping the film, in combination with newer technology in editing including Ipad drawing and animated Gifs- to create a soft-spoken and evocative short film.

As a young filmmaker in the nineties, the artist would encourage intense performative acts by her friends and lovers in front of VHS and Super 8mm film cameras. Dawn, an ex-girlfriend, and Jesse, the artist’s ex-husband, as an artist in his own right, are subjects in this film.

“Creation Scenes” examines the idea of who is creator and who is the creation: woman birthing man; artist as the hand of ‘God’ -the filmmaker… A meta-narrative of a disembodied artist drawing on himself – as the filmmaker draws on top of him: ”X-ing out her exes’s…”


The film premieres at the Maiden LA Biennial September 1-20 2020.

You can view this film and others by the artist on VIMEO or via the FILM tab above on this website.

Malado Francine Baldwin: GIF

A collaboration between the artist and her self in another form —a split/persona of the artist: from the cut-and-past of 3D-collage to the animated gif of the existing image; the artist works within dualities to create works in multiple platforms. Old school, new school techniques combine to form a colorful and dynamic short-form animé.

ABOUT THE SHOW

Social media are interactive computer-mediated technologies that facilitate the creation or sharing of information, ideas, career interests and other forms of expression via virtual communities and networks.- Wikipedia

Social Media has the implication of Facebook, Instagram,Twitter, Linkedin, and other platforms, which are used for marketing and the bringing together of networks and people. This exhibition is about forming a connection with another artist, (another BC Artist or an artist of your choice) whether it be a painting together, or you curate each other’s work.

We are pleased to present Social Media, a collaboration and thinking about painting and practices beyond our own, in hope of a connection, in this time of isolation.
