Bogna Burska: 21:21 Recommended

When: June 24-July 24, 6 p.m. 2014
Price: Free

Step right up and press your eye up to the brass peephole, remembering that the teal door is the only thing that stands between you and the wormhole Bogna Burska calls 21:21. Already known for challenging imagery, such as Arachne, an immersive video installation in which an enormous spider stalks a pink boudoir, or Algorithm, a set of 12 photographs juxtaposing the flowering of a peony bud with the surgical amputation of a limb, the Poland-based artist has directed her formidable attention toward theories on time and their correlation to the structure of film. Even without understanding the nuance between Henri-Louis Bergson's "time image" and "movement image" or the cine-physics behind Andrei Tarkovsky's "time-pressure" and "time-thrust," it is impossible not to be swept up into Bruska's video vortex. Her film clocks transform frames into rings, around which recognizable faces and places spin and stretch. Sometimes frenetic and harrowing, sometimes composed and thoughtful, they are like time itself, and will be gone before you know it.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
