[What Is This Feeling] New work by Kristin Reeves

[What Is This Feeling]
New work by Kristin Reeves
Opening June 27 from 6-10pm
June 27 –July 19, 2014

[What Is This Feeling] processes the consequences of a desire to isolate where it hurts and what it is to be human. The work is inspired by my history as a pediatric research subject and a more resent experience handling dissected and dismembered cadavers at the end of their two-years of use. I retired and documented a series of experimental handmade 16mm film loops that had been at my service for the same duration. The stills are displayed through a network of x-ray viewers, embellished power strips and electrical cords. Also on display, a running film installation in the process of breakdown.

Examining the examiners through still and moving media, Kristin Reeves has shown her work internationally in museums, galleries, theaters, art events, and festivals such as the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Microscope Gallery (Brooklyn), and the European Media Art's 2013 Best of the Festival program (Osnabrück). She has also collaborated in over 20 multimedia performances including the Tony Fitzpatrick American Trilogy at Steppenwolf Theater and she is an Assistant Professor of Art at Ball State University in Muncie, IN.
