Liliana Porter: Matinee/Matine
Hosfelt Gallery is pleased to present the West Coast premiere of Liliana Porter’s newest video, Matinee/Matine.
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.
