Still: Good News/Bad News by Meredith Danluck

Cinema Series III (Good News/Bad News), 2013. 13min.

by Meredith Danluck 

Selected and curated by David Gryn at ZARYA Center for Contemporary Art. 16-31 Oct

Danluck’s ongoing body of work, The Cinema Series addresses cinematic tropes, archetypical identities and narrative expectation.  Good News/Bad News is the third in the series and explores the various interpretations of what our feelings “look like” when interpreted cinematically. Fifteen actors from different backgrounds were selected and given a sparse script and minimal direction to embody their personal version of how receiving both good news and bad news looks and feels. Exhibited here as a two-channel wall projection, the film demonstrates the common narrative device of receiving good news or bad news on the telephone.  Shown side by side we see each actor’s body language and face change as we follow them through opposing emotions.  Patterns emerged during this process; a hand to the face to show grief, a quick shuffling of feet to show joy, posing a question as to where consensus originates, with the audience or the screen?

Meredith Danluck graduated from School of Visual Arts in New York with a Bachelors in Fine Arts. She has exhibited at the Liverpool Biennial, Reina Sofia Museum, MoMA, PS1 Museum, Venice Biennale and has a major film installation coming up at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Detroit (MOCAD) Fall of 2012. She has screened films at a number of festivals including Toronto International Film Festival, SXSW, Byron Bay, Hamburg International and Margaret Mead. In the spring of 2008 Danluck directed her first documentary feature, The Ride, a documentary about cowboys and the American identity which screened at MoMA  as part of an exhibition about the American West curated by Eva Respini. The Ride had it’s official World Premiere at the South by South West Film Festival in March of 2010.After that she immediately flew to Siberia to  direct another feature documentary, Art Hard, about the world’s largest artwork in the world. Her most ambitious work up to date is a four channel feature film entitled, North of south, West of East which was commissioned by Ballroom Marfa and screened at Sundance 2013. These four feature length narrative films play simultaneously in perfect symphony. She was selected for the Sundance 2013 Writers Lab as well as the 2013 Sundance Directors Lab for her upcoming feature. She most recently showed the first installment of the Cinema Series in a solo show with Leslie Fritz this summer.  Danluck lives and works in New York.

COMMUNION 

35mm, 10 mins (2010)

a film installation at:

Heath Street Baptist Church,

84 Heath Street, Hampstead,

London NW3 1DN

12-23 October 2013

Screening time 12 noon – 6pm (except Sundays 1- 6pm)

Communion by Nina Danino is a portrait of a young girl filmed by cinemtographer Billy Williams BSC, creating a silent, translucent image, which draws on the paradox between beauty as iconic, secular glamour and as religious interiority.

Nina Danino is an artist and filmmaker based in London. She has been making films since l980, which have been broadcast and screened at cinemas, festivals and museums worldwide. She lectures in Fine Art at Goldsmiths, University of London. http://ninadanino.com/

Billy Williams BSC is the Oscar winning cinematographer of Women in Love, Sunday Bloody Sunday, The Exorcist, Gandhi. In his career he has lit and photographed such Hollywood stars as Janet Leigh, Ava Gardner, Katherine Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor

Heath Street Baptist Church is a large Neo Gothic, non-conformist chapel built in l862. The interior is decorated with Art Nouveau stained glass windows. The Victorian Gothic interior echoes the intricate Pugin details of the Chapel setting in the film itself. http://www.heathstreet.org/

Also showing at:

The Queen’s Cinema, Gibraltar. 

12-14 November 2013

Screening Time:  12 noon – 6pm

The Queen’s Cinema opened in l957 and is one of the few remaining grand cinemas in Europe. It closed for cinema screenings in 2006, but is architecturally intact, including its luxurious furnishings and  35mm projection. The vast space of the 50’s Cinema is transformed into a first time venue for the film installation together with an especially commissioned poster for the cinema façade.

The sacred space of the Church and the secular space of the Cinema fit in very well with the dual aspect of the film which combines the star photography of Hollywood cinema with the religious iconography of portraiture associated with Communion photography.

Limited edition catalogue with a text by Sarah Cooper.

Dr. Sarah Cooper writes on Film Theory and Aesthetics and is Head of Department, Film Studies, King’s College, University of London, she is the author of The Soul of Film Theory.

Additional events:

“Art, Cinema and the Soul” a discussion with Nina Danino, Sarah Cooper, Ewan King (Minister of Heath Street Baptist Church), Gilda Williams (curator, art writer and critic) and other speakers to be announced. Heath Street Baptist Church, London.
