EAI presented a screening of new and recent works by artist and filmmaker Andrew Lampert, followed by a conversation between Lampert and musician/writer Alan Licht. At EAI, Lampert projected Super-8 films and works on video. Taking on the role of projectionist, he orchestrated the screening, providing introductions and commentary with performative elements. The event included the first New York screening of a video from Lampert's new diary series, shot (often surreptitiously) with the artist's cell-phone-sized pocket video camera; short films described by Lampert as "the death of Kodachrome," and two works that look at adolescence, one in a fictionalized, filmic past (Etka and Masha: Teenagers of The Old World, 2010, 14:41 min) and the other in today's video-saturated reality (Madeline Victorious, 2010, 6:26 min). These projects are unified in their emphasis on the frame around the edges of narrative—the genres and clichés in which he cloaks on-screen action, the happy accidents during production, and the unexpected events during a screening that shape the audience's response and foreground human activity in the cinematic context.
