"Dara Friedman: Film and Video Projects"
2001-02-10 until 2001-05-27
SITE Santa Fe
Santa Fe, NM, USA United States of America

SITE Santa Fe will present three of Dara Friedman's film/video projects. Proposed to be shown at SITE Santa Fe are Government Cut Freestyle, 1998 and Chrissy, Mette, Kristan, 2000. SITE Santa Fe also plans to show a piece that Ms. Friedman has made during a recent residency at the American Academy in Rome, Italy. Influenced by the structuralist film tradition, Dara Friedman's work utilizes repetitive and sometimes synchronized sequences of motion and sound. Friedman says, There are a number of things that interest me about sound and its dynamic with images. Sometimes I think you can tell more about a person by hearing them speak than by seeing a photograph (film) of them there is less that gets lost in translation. Repetition is also about making something important (you really mean it, and if you didn't catch if the first time, you have another chance) or unimportant (the quality of what is said disappears into the quantity).

Miami, Florida-based artist Dara Friedman was born in Germany where she studied with the pioneering experimental Austrian filmmaker Peter Kubelka. She received an MFA from the University of Miami, School of Motion Pictures, Miami, Florida and has attended The Slade School of Fine Art, University College, London, U.K.; Stadelschule, Frankfurt am Main, Germany; and Vassar College, Poughkeepsie, New York. Dara Friedman has participated in group exhibitions such as the 2000 Whitney Biennial, The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Heads Up, Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami, Florida; and Leftover Festivities, Nature Morte, New Delhi, India. She has had numerous solo exhibitions including Gavin Brown's enterprise, New York, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, IL; and she is stupid I am worried, Frederic Snitzer Gallery, Coral Gables, Florida (with Mark Handforth).
