LYNCH THAM in collaboration with CoWorker Projects is pleased to present an anthological screening of video works by Carlo Ferraris.

The screening will feature a series of 15 videos, starting with one of Ferraris’ first videos from 1997, Lilliburlero, 2:00 minutes. The video is a short satirical piece on the British Lilliburlero march, which dates back to the English Civil War of 1642. The screening also includes one of the artist’s longest narrative short films, 17:52 minutes, Eastern Standard Time – Eyes transfixed, a young man bears a rotating radiation symbol upon his forehead. The man struggles and fails to differentiate between the words “porc” and “Porsche.” In this film, Ferraris overturns the priorities of filmic convention: images trump scenes, context trumps narrative. EST is a dark and clever plot on contemporary espionage.

Other videos in the evening’s presentation include: Michigan parallel, 2001, 1:27 mins; La notte, 2002, 1:34 mins; Frostwave, 2003, 1:36 mins; A bullet flying since forty years, 2003, 2:04 mins; Stick to the sky, 2003, 1:59 mins; Table roof, 2008, 1:16 mins; More than still, 2008, 0:31 mins; Cowboy with measure tape, 2009, 1:28 mins; Outdoor sculpture, 2009, 1:56 mins; Rotator Cuff, 2010, 0:39 mins; Counterclockwise, 2010, 1:36 mins; Some people think that pushing the call button repeatedly will make the elevator come faster, 2010, 3:23 mins; Behind a Rolling Ball Comes a Running Child, 2013, 1:23 mins; Return From Jupiter, 2013, 1:55 mins.

A long with his interest in film and video, Ferraris is also an accomplished photographer. He is a 2004 New York Foundation for the Arts Fellow in Photography, and has participated in numerous exhibitions in Europe, Asia and the U.S. Ferraris’ work has been published and reviewed extensively in publications such as The New York Times, Vogue, Elle Decor, Flash Art, Lacanian Ink, Casa Vogue, Art Press, Art in America, ArtNews, L’Architettura, Juliet, Artforum, Tema Celeste, and The Art Newspaper, among others.
