88 from 14,00
Women’s Studio Workshop Presents: Alice Miceli At The C H R C H Project Space
88 lives are projected in Alice Miceli’s single-channel video-projection, “88 from 14,000.” From original Cambodian archives, Miceli chose to show 88 prisoners’ mug shots amidst a veil of falling sand as a representation of their time behind bars during the Khmer Rouge regime that executed them.
The film will premiere at the new Cottekill C H R C H Project Space, running on a loop from 5-8pm on April 13, and 4-6pm on April 14. Alice Miceli, a Women’s Studio Workshop’s NEA funded studio grant recipient, will be giving an artist’s talk on Saturday evening at 6pm.
Alice Miceli creates conceptual visualizations for extreme, often socio-political, issues, dealing with subjects such as time, memory and death. With an interest in the meanings inherent to media and the production of documentation, she seeks to re-signify facts and stories, creating a poetics that lies in the realm of the “unportrayable”, rethinking strategies of perception.
