Images Festival 2018 Programming Launch
15 March-21 April
With Biologue, American artist Trisha Baga extends her recent work into a new two-part video installation. Throughout the work, cells subdivide via mitosis, languages collapse into phonemes and misheard sounds, objects dissolve into detritus, and digital images shatter into pixels and artifacts. While preoccupied with these processes of fragmentation, Baga is equally invested in reassembling and recombining their elements into new narratives. Biologue collages video footage of the artist’s family road trip through the Philippines , audio from Hollywood soundtracks, and objects both readymade and hand-crafted. A circuitous journey that reflects how culture and its signs travel and shift, Baga’s work alludes to Philippine history and the layers of colonialism the country has endured, and considers the resulting cultural and aesthetic osmosis through repeated translations and mistranslations. Baga collapses disparate spaces and languages, creating an immersive 3D-video environment that playfully explores the promise of “immersion” across both physical and virtual spaces. Biologue invites viewers to become subsumed in itsflows , and to make meaning from simultaneous but diverging sensory and perceptual experiences.
