On View: Landmarks Video "Papillon D’Amour" by Nicolas Provost

Wednesday, April 30, 2014 at 8:00am to 9:00pm

Art Building (ART), Atrium 2301 SAN JACINTO BLVD , Austin, Texas 78712

On view for the month of April 2014. By subjecting fragments from the film "Rashomon" by Akira Kurosawa to the mirror effect, Nicolas Provost creates a hallucinatory scene of a woman‘s reverse chrysalis turning into an imploding butterfly. "Papillon d’amour" produces skewed reflections upon love, its lyrical monstrosities and wounded act of disappearance.

Videos are screened at a media station in the Art Building located on the corner of E. 23rd St. and San Jacinto Boulevard. Adjacent to art history classrooms and the Visual Arts Center galleries, the media station is in an open atrium that provides stadium seating for daily viewing. Headsets to optimize sound may be checked out from the Visual Arts Center reception desk during operating hours.
