EAI is pleased to partner with cinema arts non-profit Mono No Aware to co-present Leslie Thornton: Tuned to a Shifting Ground, a program that includes the world premiere of a new work.

About

Thornton's hybrid film/video Fog Fog Fog Ants was commissioned by Mono No Aware specifically for the occasion and will be available for distribution through EAI.

Working for over four decades, Leslie Thornton has created a deep and complex body of films, videos and installations. For this event, Thornton will present some her earliest works and influences, and touch upon stages of her development as an artist and participant in the shifting ground of technological image making. A student of filmmakers such as Hollis Frampton, Stan Brakhage, Paul Sharits and Peter Kubelka, Thornton locates her work as squarely emanating from avant-garde and verite cinematic traditions. She will trace her own aesthetic shifts from the coolness of structural film to a current interest in the strategies of engagement essential to narrative form. Her new work, Fog Fog Fog Ants, combines a clash of hand-made film and digital imagery, with a beguiling and assaultive monologue performed by Thornton. This program is part of MONO NO AWARE X, an annual festival of expanded cinema and installations taking place from November 3 - December 3, 2016. For more information visit mononoawarefilm.com
