DOCUMENT is pleased to present Crossbar Radical-Tick Scoop Star, a solo exhibition of new work by Southern California-based artist Victoria Fu.

This installation mixes video monitors, projection and photographs. Belle Captive III, a video projection referencing touchscreen gestures, coats the surfaces of the gallery. Its images fuse with photographic elements in the room, and collide with the footage on monitor screens—one presenting roving prism light, and the other, Belle Captive II, a narrative woven from stock clips playing on a monitor.

The work considers image as surface—collapsing screened, projected and photographic images with actual space. The videos mimic cinematic camera movement as well as digital touchscreen gestures. Incorporating digital and analog processes and textures, the work examines our projections of meaning onto the flatness of visible images.

Victoria Fu received a BFA from Stanford University, an MA in Art History from the University of Southern California, and an MFA from CalArts. She was a resident at Skowhegan and attended the Whitney Independent Study Program. In March, her work will be featured in the 2014 Whitney Biennial and she currently has a solo exhibition at the UC Irvine University Art Gallery. Previous exhibition venues have included the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, La Jolla, CA; De Appel, Amsterdam, Netherlands; Museo de la Ciudad, Quito, Ecuador; Seoul National University Museum, Seoul, Korea; among others. She is a 2013 grantee of the Art Matters Foundation and the Rema Hort Mann Foundation’s Artist Project Fund. Fu co-founded ARTOFFICE.org and directs its current online project, The Moving Index. She lives and works in Los Angeles and San Diego, where she is an Assistant Professor of Film/Video Art.

BETWEEN THE WATERS

ERIN JANE NELSON

The Whitney Museum of American Art

Opening March 2018


This group exhibition features works by six emerging artists that address the inseparability of the natural and social worlds through a distinctly subjective or autobiographical lens. The artists included are: Carolina Caycedo (b. 1978, London; lives and works in Los Angeles, CA), Demian DinéYazhi ́(b. 1983, Gallup, NM; lives and works in Portland, OR), Torkwase Dyson (b. 1973, Chicago, IL; lives and works in Brooklyn, NY), Cy Gavin (b. 1985, Pittsburgh, PA; lives and works in New York, NY), Lena Henke (b. 1982, Warburg, Germany; lives and works New York, NY), and Erin Jane Nelson (b. 1989, Neenah, WI; lives and works in Atlanta, GA). Working in painting, sculpture, and video, these artists take environmental realities and histories of the land as a point of departure—from hydroelectric dam construction in Colombia and transatlantic underwater internet cables to Bermuda’s ecological and sociopolitical evolution—to create intuitive, sometimes fictional or fantastical narratives. In doing so, these works merge the mythical and the personal, collectively asserting the value of individual human experience while suggesting the limits of human reason.

The exhibition is organized by Elisabeth Sherman, assistant curator, and Margaret Kross, curatorial assistant.
