Artillery Magazine & Theatre at Ace Hotel present Marnie Weber's The Day of Forevermore

About

In this modern fairy tale, a daughter struggles to find freedom from her imposing mother, an elderly demented witch, on the mysterious farm of Forevermore Acres, a rundown junk strewn ranch full of aged witches and misfit monsters. The mother’s plans to indoctrinate her daughter into her coven of darkness are interrupted by three curious teens that wander onto the farm. The daughter, yearning for a life beyond the farm, is a compassionate and innocent soul but may have a bit of the devil in her when called upon to take power.

Marnie Weber - Short Bio

Marnie Weber’s multidisciplinary practice encompasses performance, film, video, sculpture, collage, music and costuming.  By combining her own mythology of creatures, monsters, animals and female characters with costuming on film and stage sets; she creates her own fictional narratives of passion, transformation, and discovery. Weber creates uncanny worlds that exist in a realm between fantasy and reality, and invites viewers into an exploration of the subconscious. Using fairytale-like imagery, she places women in positions of power and primacy creating a backdrop as a site of transformation and magic. Weber’s early years were grounded in performance art, before moving into filmmaking and later large-scale installations, all the while continuing a practice of making collages, music, and limited edition records as an art form. All of these mediums carry a homemade, intentionally naïve aesthetic that continues throughout her work. She has had solo shows, video screenings and performances throughout the U.S., Asia and Europe, and has had a retrospective of her work at Magasin in Grenoble France. Recent exhibitions include a large-scale installation at Mattress Factory in Pittsburg, and a twenty-five-year survey exhibition at MAMCO (Musée d'art moderne et contemporain, Geneva). Weber has recently completed her first feature film titled, The Day of Forevermore, which utilizes all the aspects of her multidisciplinary practice. She is the writer, director, and producer of the film and also designed and created all the costumes and music.
