Special Screening of Matinee/Matine by Liliana Porter

Hosfelt Gallery is pleased to present the U.S. premier of Liliana Porter's most recent video Matinee/Matine with screenings at our New York gallery on Thursday, June 25th at 7pm and Saturday, June 27th at 2 and 4pm.

Following the screening on June 25, Porter will have a conversation about her work with Gabriel Perez-Barreiro, Director of the Coleccion Patricia Phelps de Cisneros.

Drawn from an extensive collection of vintage knickknacks, toys, and souvenirs, Porter's "characters" (with occasional help from a human hand) "act" in a succession of seemingly unrelated vignettes that together comprise a poetic vision of the human condition. Incongruities between image and music trigger unexpected political, philosophical and existential interpretations.

Matinee/Matine is Porter's fourth video work. As in each of the prior videos, the haunting and beautiful soundtrack is an original score composed and performed by Sylvia Meyer.
