Entwistle, the third event in conjunction with the Gallery TPW series You Had
To Be There.

 

Underscoring the performative impulse inherent in the moving
image event and the role of the cinema as a discursive space, Redmond
Entwistle’s new project Satellite is a site-specific work for Gallery TPW and a
deliberation on the intricate relationship to liveness and presence in film.
Satellite documents the informal screening spaces located in storefronts around
the city that diasporic communities establish for the communal viewing of
satellite television. In doing so, Entwistle initiates a reflection on the role
of the storefront space in art production and exhibition, effectively using the
moving image to hold a mirror up to the space of Gallery TPW and the audience
who chooses to assemble there.

 

An essay by Jacob Korczynski accompanied the event and can be downloaded below.

 

Redmond Entwistle is an artist-filmmaker currently living in
New York. Entwistle employs documentary and abstract modes of film-making,
often investigating histories of social displacement and creating portraits of
cities anchored on the invisible or the implied. Recent works include Monuments
(2009), Skein (2007), and Paterson-Lódz (2006). Entwistle studied at California
Institute of the Arts and the Whitney Independent Study Program. He has
presented projects in recent group shows at Miguel Abreu Gallery (NY), Nought
to Sixty (ICA, London) and has an upcoming solo exhibition at Art in General
(NY).
