Featured Screening: Andrea Callard’s Talking Landscape: Early Media Work, 1974-1984 at Maysles Cinema
Tonight Maysles Cinema premieres Andrea Callard’s Talking Landscape: Early Media Work, 1974-1984, which runs nightly at 7:30 pm through February 19.
Described as Callard’s debut feature film, Talking Landscape is a sequenced collection of Super 8mm films and newly narrated slideshows. Several works feature the fellow artists and activities of Collaborative Projects, the storied artists’ group of which Callard was founding secretary. Most prominent of these a slideshow detailing room-by-room the 1980 Times Square Show exhibition organized by Collab including work by artists such as Coleen Fitzgibbon, Christy Rupp, Tom Otterness, Wolfgang Staehle, John Ahearn, Jenny Holzer, Keith Haring and Kiki Smith along with what some believe is Jean-Michel Basquiat‘s first painting. But the focus is primarily on Callard’s own film work, best known of which is 11 thru 12 and features Callard speculating about time, space, knowledge and value through a discussion of seagulls, telephone books, taxi cabs and National Geographic magazine. It’s a disarming introduction to her sing-song voice, which takes the spotlight in several other earnestly deadpan lo-fi a-capella numbers anticipating the delivery of Beat Happening’s Calvin Johnson and Heather Lewis. My favorite of these is Fluorescent/Azalea, in which Callard sings out the name of plant life over a hypnotic loop of psychedelic eastern music. Alternatively intoxicating and musical is Contact Mics with Cara featuring Callard and Cara Perlman, framed within remote window sills, idly rubbing contact mics across their faces.
A display of original prints featured in the slideshow “The Custom House” will be on exhibit at the cinema through March 1. Callard appears Thursday, February 16 and Saturday, February 18 for a discussion with curator Livia Bloom.
