ML in Hysterical Literature

image

Spring Fever and a little distraction from your taxes! I participated in Clayton Cubitt’s HYSTERICAL LITERATURE project, reading my favorite poem, “Self-portrait in a Convex Mirror” by John Ashbery.
-Here is an essay with some of my thoughts on the experience, plus you can watch the classy/NSFW video, link is at the bottom.

Sometimes you get spontaneous inspiration in the city…I get a kick out of 3D antics with two-dimensional posters. This grocery delivery truck was parked in Willamsburg when I got the self-portrait, the driver looked a bit alarmed when I saw his face in the rearview mirror. A few months later I saw the same kind of truck parked on the UWS Manhattan.MLSP is Marne Lucas Self-Portrait, an ongoing series since 1997.Special Assistance: Timo Ellis

This is my first ‘Velour Girls’ pin-up shoot in the new year, with a new model! Virginia is a very talented painter and I’m looking forward to photographing her for my ‘Sitting City’ artist portrait series.

We are thrilled to announce the premiere of my new film Incident Energy and hope to see you at the show on Friday evening!
An installation by Jacob Pander and Marne Lucas

*OPENING RECEPTION: Friday September 20th, 7-9pm,
Live Performance @ 8pm by choreographer Jim McGinn.

Disjecta Contemporary Art Center (Flex Space)
September 20th-October 13th, 2013

Take Max Yellow Line: Kenton Street station. Onsite, street parking.

INCIDENT ENERGY is a multi-channel video installation by Jacob Pander and Marne Lucas filmed with heat-sensitive Thermal Imaging (infrared/IR) cameras, exploring themes of nature, culture and the body. By utilizing Range Phenomenology technology usually associated with military, border, or aerial surveillance, we aim to inspire contemplation by framing the luminous energy of the human body and offering a glimpse into visual worlds that are ever-present yet hidden from our perception.
Contrasting the stark IR imagery with primal human movement, dance choreographer Jim McGinn and accompanying performers Mizu Desierto and Douglas Allen appear as translucent primitive humans, like living alabaster sculptures in a timeless realm where bodies possess a simultaneous interiority/exteriority; as warm veins, cold extremities and breath are all visible (in real time, no special effects). This project was funded in part by a 2012 RACC Project Grant.   
www.incidentenergyproject.comMarne Lucas is a photographer and multi-disciplinary artist working in New York City and Portland, Oregon. Exploring nature, pop-culture and sexuality, she presents social, aesthetic and eco-based philosophies about humanity that include photography, video, and installation. Lucas collaborates extensively behind/in front of the camera and is known for her stylistic, intuitive photographic portraits celebrating the body, in the historically male tradition of erotic tableaux. Her ongoing artist portrait series shares a similar process and aesthetic.  She is a RACC Project Grant and Oregon Arts Commission Public Art residency + grant recipient, has participated in national residencies and has exhibited nationally and most recently in the Mongolia 360˙ Land Art Biennial with her Eco-Baroque work. She has worked extensively in photography, film & video production, on curatorial projects and in health and arts related non-profit organizations. http://www.marnelucas.com, www.eco-baroque.comJacob Pander is a filmmaker and visual artist and has directed music videos for artists Fantastic Plastic Machine, Howie B., and Spacer. A strong sense of storytelling and visual art background drives Pander’s distinct cinematic style, his work garnering top awards and featured in film festivals nationally and abroad. Recent films include the feature length documentary, “Painted Life”, a personal look at the life and work of his father, Dutch immigrant artist Henk Pander. Working with his brother Arnold extensively, the Pander Brothers feature film debut, SELFLESS, is a sexy psychological thriller about the corrosive nature of ego and obsession. Pander is a recipient of a RACC project grant and an Oregon Arts Commission grant.  http://www.jacobpander.com,  http://www.panderbros.com
