Video Art and Film by K8 Hardy
Light Industry presents a screening of films and videos by K8 Hardy, ranging from early small-gauge experiments to recent collaborations.
Work to be shown:
New Report Morning Edition, Wynne Greenwood and K8 Hardy, 3-channel video, 2005
As reporters for the station WKRH, Greenwood/Henry Stein-Acker-Hill and Hardy/Henry Irigaray do a personal report on objectification of female bodies. This video is an uncut document of the 20-minute performance that reveals their process as well as how intensely the two artists took to their investigation.
Sisters in the Struggle, video, 2006 (Lesbians on Ecstasy music video)
Plundering the aesthetics of 70s lesbian imagery, video art, and style, this video uses the band to refer to the Women’s music scene that their album takes direct inspiration from.
Disquiet, Super-8/16mm, 2002
A meditative investigation on the architecture that creates a totally corporate land, and a study of one person’s limited and meaningless movements within that space.
Ants in Her Pants, Super-8, 1998
An early experimental film documenting the enthusiasm of a young and queer generation, its energy and style.
Plus other videos, including a music video made for Le Tigre, and a few made with great angst.
Followed by a post-show discussion between Hardy and Ulrike Müller.
