Description

Video artist Michal Rovner's unique and ever-expanding alphabet is built of tiny depictions of the human figure. "Fields" documents her work in this vein over the past three years, including "Data Zone, " which combines the sculpture and video from her acclaimed solo exhibition in the 2003 Venice Biennale; documentation of the video installation "Time Left;" works from the project "In Stone, " including stone moving "texts;" and notebook vitrines. Her recent collaboration with the composer Heiner Goebbels, "Fields of Fire, " which was made following a trip to Kazakhstan, depicts oil-field fires in a landscape that recalls both the fluid ink brush of the Soong and T'ang dynasty and the hyperkinetic pen of the seismograph: the notion of landscape is transformed from the symbol of constancy to an engine of metamorphosis.show more
