Alum in Johannesburg Gallery

Featuring the work of ITP alumnus, Nathaniel Stern.

Dynamic Stasis

Opens 26 January 2013 at GALLERY AOP, Johannesburg

Nathaniel Stern and Jessica Meuninck-Ganger continue their unique prints + drawings mounted to video screens, creating ‘moving images on paper.’ This exhibition premieres 14 new works that culminated from an online residency with GALLERY AOP, and features a catalog with essay by renowned media theorist Richard Grusin. For documentation including text, images and videos of the artists’ ongoing work together, please visit http://jessicameuninckganger.nathanielstern.com

On the most literal level, Dynamic Stasis refers to how each of the works combines the “dynamism” of moving video with the “stasis” of graphic prints. Each of the main works combines a print (or drawing) on translucent paper, which is overlaid on a looped video playing on a LCD photo-viewing screen, resulting in a doubled and amplified work of art. The images in each print are drawn (etched, carved, screened, etc) from images that occur in the video at different moments in time, with subject matter that ranges from prosaic moments in everyday life to various, complex and iconographical systems.
