Jem Cohen: Life Drawing

. September 1, 2015.
Jem-Cohen

Jem Cohen is a NYC-based film maker who uses a variety of media formats to capture the world as it unfolds. His dual-gallery presentation is entitled Life Drawing and illustrates a version of life drawing itself—there isn’t one way to capture its delicate creation. We Have an Anchor is an environmental portrait of Nova Scotia, with footage gathered over 10 years, crafted by using a single-channel video projection that incorporates composited 16mm, super 8, and HD imagery. Poetic language flies across the screen accompanied by an original score performed by members of a diverse group of bands including: Fugazi, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and Dirty Three. The Photography Gallery section includes 25 still photos of seemingly haunted geographies and their inhabitants. 

11am-5pm Tuesday-Saturday, noon-5pm Sunday, all month.
