Apologies abound, but mostly in the "lol siento" form. If you're most
anywhere in the US, you're still within flying distance of this evening's
excellent show at the Nightingale (1084 N Milwaukee). Works by Lorenzo
Gattorna, Ryan Marino, Shambhavi Kaul, Marika Borgeson and Josh Weissbach.

Not So Static : Lorenzo Gattorna and Close Company
Artist in attendance! World Premiere of Jones Falls!
Saturday, September 27, 2014, 7 pm, $7-10

The Nightingale is pleased to bring Baltimore-based filmmaker and
programmer Lorenzo Gattorna to screen his films and films of subsequent
influence. The program alternates between Gattorna’s haunting documentaries
and idiosyncratic works by Ryan Marino, Shambhavi Kaul, Marika Borgeson and
Josh Weissbach. Somewhere between the optical and the ocular, the
spectacular and the speculative, the sites in these films masquerade as
themselves. The artists whose work Gattorna has chosen have chosen
him—sharing a devotion to both estrangement and cognition, while serving to
elucidate each other. This program renders a quiet recollection of the
capacity of the moving image to transport an audience to another place and
a place to an audience. Seeing is a kind of knowing, but one fraught with
seductive half-truths, misdirective fantasies and the consciousness that
often a closer look only reveals greater distance.
