THE ORDER OF NATURE

François Ghebaly and LA Dance Project present a three part screening series curated by Andrea Franco.

At a moment when we have become aware of humanity’s negative impact on the earth, we also seem to be moving towards an understanding of nature as indivisible from us. Nature responds to us, to our connection with it, to how we interfere with it, and to the myths that surround it. The three part screening series reflects on our relationship with nature, the current state of the Anthropocene, and the psychic space shared between film and nature. The works offer distinctive ways to see and think about the world, and an opportunity to detach from the currently reality in order to connect to it in a renewed way.

Patrick Jackson at Frieze LA

Directly engaging the film-set site, multi-faceted artist Patrick Jackson utilizes the tools of the film trade to create a set within a set. Acknowledging the artifice of the situation, Alley on the Inside (2019)—a made-up psychological term referring to “the dark corners of the mind”—simulates a classic cinematic trope, the outdoor urban back alley, built inside an interior set. Deepening the uncanny atmosphere, several of Jackson’s large-scale wall reliefs, which the artist compares to ectoplasm, spirits pulled from the body and made solid, hang on the faux brick walls.
