'During Four Hours' Will Show Four Simultaneous Projections for The Nightclub Series
For its fourth installment of a 12-part series, The Nightclub looks to create a dialogue between multiple art exhibits by combining previously made material with live documentation. For During Four Hours, the three films that previously screened at The Nightclub will be projected simultaneously while a fourth will display a live feed shown during the presentation.
All three films were executed by situating a camera on a fixed point without interruptions for four continuous hours, a pattern that the new installment will also follow. Much like Andy Warhol's Chelsea Girls and the Mike Figgis film Timecode, both of which ran multiple continuous shots that ran concurrently, During Four Hours utilizes this technique to explore the parallels between a work of art and a documentary record.
As there are eight more presentations left in The Nightclub series, it's not known yet if this new installment will be part of a presentation that will accumulate further visuals, but During Four Hours will regardless be an interesting mixture in of itself which looks to show how individual works can merge to create something completely new and thought-provoking.
During Four Hours will be shown on July 6 at the Buena Vista Building at 7 p.m.
