FILMVERKSTADEN presents NATHANIEL DORSKY and STAN BRAKHAGE (1 of 4)

STAN BRAKHAGE is known for the personal character of his films and to present a rippling reality in which the photographic raw material of the filmmaker’s actual life is repeatedly transformed and reseen in a continual turbulence of movement, of color, of light. Brakhage considers the camera analogous to the eye, and film analogous to vision. His concept of vision “includes such things as the flashing abstract patterns the eye sees when shut, visual memories, imaginations, hallucinations, daydreams and night dreams,” notes Renan. With distorting lenses, scratching, painting, superimpositions, editing and other methods of manipulating light, he has tried to put this composite vision on film.

The films of NATHANIEL DORSKY blend a beauteous celebration of the sensual world with a deep sense of introspection and solitude. They are occasions for reflection and meditation, on light, landscape, time and the motions of consciousness. Their luminous photography emphasizes the elemental frisson between solidity and luminosity, between spirit and matter, while his uniquely developed montage permits a fluid and flowing experience of time. Dorsky’s films reveal the mystery behind everyday existence, providing intimations of eternity.

PNEUMA
NATHANIEL DORSKY
1977-1983 | 16MM | COLOR | SILENT | 27’00
In Stoic philosophy “pneuma” is the “soul” or fiery wind permeating the body, and at death survives the body but as impersonal energy. Similarly, the “world pneuma” permeates the details of the world. The images in this film come from an extensive collection of out-dated raw stock that has been processed without being exposed, and sometimes rephotographed in closer format. Each pattern of grain takes on its own emotional life, an evocation of different aspects of our own being. A world is revealed that is alive with the organic deterioration of film itself, the essence of cinema in its before-image, preconceptual purity. The present twilight of reversal reality has made this collection a fond farewell to those short-lived but hardy emulsions. – Nathaniel Dorsky

THE LOOM
STAN BARKHAGE
1986 | 16MM | COLOR | SILENT | 42’30
A multiple-superimposition hand-painted visual symphony of animal life of earth. The Loom might be compared to musical quartet-form (as there are almost always four superimposed pictures); but the complexity of texture, multiplicity of tone, and the variety of interrelated rhythm, suggest symphonic dimensions. The film is very inspired by George Melies: the animals exist (in Jane’s enclosure) as on a stage, their interrelationships edited to the disciplines of dance, so therefore one might say this hardly represents “animal life on earth”; but I would argue that this work at least epitomizes theatrical Nature, magical Creature, and is the outside limit, to date, of my art in that respect. – Stan Brakhage
