Anne Colvin will present Attn: Miss Calpurnia a public program for the SFAC Galleries exhibition, FAX.
Attn: Miss Calpurnia is an iteration of a film, a figure, a still, an image, a page and a color fax machine, in a never-ending, transforming loop. The material components move from film, to video, to fax, to copy, to print in the deconstruction of the still and moving image. Colvin displays a fleeting figure frozen on the page which is caught up in its own elusive choreography as the sheets of paper feed through the fax machine and fall to the floor. It will be an event that will explore the artistic functionality of the fax machine and its relationship to the moving image.
Fax is a traveling exhibition co organized by the drawing center, New York and ICI (Independent Curators International). Exhibition runs through July 21.
