Landmarks Video Presents "Papillon D’Amour" by Nicolas Provost
On view for the month of April 2014
By subjecting fragments from the film Rashomon by Akira Kurosawa to the mirror effect, Nicolas Provost creates a hallucinating scene of a woman‘s reverse chrysalis into an imploding butterfly. Papillon d’amour produces skewed reflections upon love, its lyrical monstrosities and wounded act of disappearance.
Videos are screened on a media station in the ART building located on the corner of East 23rd Street and San Jacinto Boulevard. Adjacent to art history classrooms and the Visual Arts Center galleries, the media station is in an open atrium that provides stadium seating for viewing from 8 am to 9 pm daily. Headsets to optimize sound may be checked out from the Visual Arts Center reception desk during operating hours.
