Leading up to “TRANSMISSION: Part 1 and Part 2” – a traveling two-night video exhibition – we will feature one artist in the show every few days on this blog. “Part 1” will take place at the Center for the Arts Eagle Rock (7:30-9:30pm) on January 24th, and “Part 2” will be at the Orange County Museum of Art (5:30-7:30pm) on February 8th. Today’s focus is interdisciplinary artist Deanna Erdmann.
Says the artist:
“My work engages perception and transformation, addressing the politics of place, class and the body. Through the reconfiguration and denaturalization of image, time and sound, my work seeks out the invisible within the visible. I start with the still image as a foundation for contemplation. Using transitory, repeated, and improvised gestures I propose new strategies for viewing that challenge habitual engagement and perception. The resulting combinations of images, movement and sound coalesce, creating visceral and meditative experiences.”
Erdmann received her MFA from UC San Diego in 2008, and has shown at Angel’s Gate Cultural Center, San Pedro (CA), the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (CA), and REDCAT, Los Angeles (CA), among many other venues. The artist lives and works in Los Angeles.
