What am I looking at?

These local comedians go around to art openings and discuss what they see. They visited Antena a few weeks ago for Kristin Reeves art opening.

[What Is This Feeling] New work by Kristin Reeves


[What Is This Feeling]
New work by Kristin Reeves
Opening June 27 from 6-10pm
June 27 –July 19, 2014

[What Is This Feeling] processes the consequences of a desire to isolate where it hurts and what it is to be human. The work is inspired by my history as a pediatric research subject and a more resent experience handling dissected and dismembered cadavers at the end of their two-years of use. I retired and documented a series of experimental handmade 16mm film loops that had been at my service for the same duration. The stills are displayed through a network of x-ray viewers, embellished power strips and electrical cords. Also on display, a running film installation in the process of breakdown.

Bio

She has also collaborated in over 20 multimedia performances including the Tony Fitzpatrick American Trilogy at Steppenwolf Theater and she is an Assistant Professor of Art at Ball State University in Muncie, IN.

Ruthless Powers: New Work by Liz Born & Victoria Martinez

Ruthless Powers
New Work by Liz Born & Victoria Martinez

Opening Reception Friday, May 16th, from 6-10pm
May 16 - June 13, 2014

Antena
1755 S Laflin St.

Using plants, refuse, and roadkill, Born and Martinez attempt reanimation, asking: How does a body become a monument? Ruthless Powers presents moments of decay, both architectural and biological, and the subsequent preservation of abandoned places and post-mortem tissues. New works reflect evidence of formal decision-making that leads to a subconscious confrontation.

Drinks and refreshments will be served. We hope you can join us!

Liz Born is a printmaker, teaching artist and founder of Hoofprint Workshop, a Pilsen-based printmaking studio. Her woodcuts feature a handful of characters, archetypal and mammalian, performing acts of eating, birthing, and self-contemplation.

Victoria Martinez is an interdisciplinary artist and educator from Pilsen. She creates site-specific interventions in the urban environment that honor memories growing up in the community. Her work includes materials from local establishments and found objects to echo nostalgia.

"antena" is a project space located in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood. The spanish word "antena" means a device that is a transducer designed to transmit or receive electromagnetic waves. In this case, it is meant to define a cultural space that symbolically transmits/broadcasts art ideas, new media & installation projects on a local and global scale.
