Press Release

S01E01, a reference to pilot episodes of TV shows (Season 1 Episode 1), is kijidome’s first curatorial collaboration to launch its founding and to set a spirited, open-ended stage for its upcoming events. The three artists in this exhibition—Dennis Congdon, Oliver Herring and Elizabeth Riley—thrive on practices based on regeneration by incorporating or referencing their previous works. By engaging in a self-reflective and transformative process, the objects and videos by these artists reveal the particularities of their decisions within the fluid narrative of their practice, punctuating their ongoing play with visually stunning, idiosyncratic forms.

Dennis Congdon’s paintings depict forsaken ruins of his own paintings as well as those of his influences amidst other cultural detritus. Beginning with drawings made directly on the canvas from handmade stencils, Congdon builds his work in an intuitive manner that freely references images from the history of art as well as from his own studio.

Oliver Herring’s photographs and videos are generated from his interactive performance series Areas for Action. The remnants and objects created by Herring and his participants are often reused throughout the performance as they are being documented. The photographs and videos embody the transitory state between object, image and action, all in the midst of an improvisational process.

Elizabeth Riley’s recent work is rooted in the moving image. Some videos exist as stand-alone, single channel pieces, while in others she incorporates them into colorful sculptural installations populated with monitors and printed stills of those videos. Riley’s work follows in the tradition of film’s historical and robust avant-garde, all the while being insistent on a visceral, sculptural format.
