Double the Art 

Wednesday, May 26 2010
From a distance, Julie Anand and Damon Sauer’s photo collages look pixelated, with individual squares combining to form the overarching images. But, as with the work of Chuck Close, it pays to get right up against one — you’ll notice that the connecting technology is of another century. Anand and Sauer start with archival prints, run them through an office-quality document shredder, and then reassemble the thin strips on a handcrafted loom. It’s no secret that we love art made with office shredders and looms, but the pieces in “Between” have an intriguing light/dark quality, using both digital and analog technologies, with the images doubled and slightly offset, as if scanned twice. Duality, you might be thinking, correctly. The final work explores this as well, with hands joined together in various ways, folded, pressed together in prayer, or cupped together as if cradling the soul. It’s no accident that “Between” is a collaboration, with two artists doing the work. Anand and Sauer give an artist talk tonight at 7; the exhibit runs concurrently, naturally, with Luis Delgado-Qualtrough’s “Epigraph.”

An opening reception for “Between” and “Epigraph” starts at 6 p.m.

  • 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.'"
