Description

Image: Beck+Col, Rainbow Face! on Vacation, 2017

In conjunction with the exhibit And then there is California., Beach=Culture presents an evening of screenings featuring video works from Kelly Wall, Hanieh Khatibi and exhibition curators Beck+Col.

Kelly Wall's Beneath the Rosy Tinted West, Through Dusty Curtains I Will Come, was filmed in the Santa Monica Mountains, near her home in Venice Beach. It is a story about a paper mache sculpture that her mom made as a child that Wall brought to life. She explores her relationship with her mother through this sculpture and the nostalgia of old western Hollywood.

Hanieh Khatibi's Drawn In-Drawn Out was filmed at Malibu Beach. In this film, Khatibi carries two rocks wrapped in textiles along the coast. Using her body, she explores the relationship between weight, weightlessness and suspension. The experience of loss and precariousness is at the heart of her work. She uses materials found near her home in Santa Monica.

Beck+Col screens Rainbow Face! on Vacation, a film shot while in residency at the Annenberg Community Beach House July 2017. A celebration of their alter ego characters' love for the Southern California beach.

There is science, logic, reason; there is thought verified by experience. And then there is California. -Edward Abbey

Approaching contemporary landscapes from unique perspectives, the artists in 'And then there is California.' challenge the way we look at the California coast. The works in the show are a reflection of their interactions with the coastal landscape and a celebration of its intersection with the unique culture of Los Angeles.
