Experimental filmmaker Luther Price has painstakingly handcrafted slides and 8mm and 16 mm films for more than three decades. His works typically begin with found footage, layering “viscerally distressed found film strips with provocative images, anarchic visual patterns, dirt, mold and other detritus in a sensuous, even ecstatic, vision of entropy and mortality—inscribed directly onto the film medium.”
Price visits REDCAT on Monday (April 7) for the program, Body and Flesh: The Tactile Cinema of Luther Price, which features two slide projection pieces, including Light Fractures (2013), several Super 8 films, and a new 16mm film.
He then lectures and screens work on Tuesday during the Structuring Strategies Film Class, which is also open to the public. Price also conducts a film workshop with students while at CalArts.
Price was included in the 2012 Whitney Biennial. We posted a video from the Whitney, above, in which he explains his process and describes his art.
