Shadow Fux, an exhibition of collaborations between Rita Ackermann and Harmony Korine, opened at the Swiss Institute, New York, on November 23. The exhibition will run through to January 22, 2011. Pictures from the exhibition can be found here. More information can also be found on the Swiss Institute website here.
Korine recently spoke to Adam O’Reilly at Interview about the show and his relationship with Ackermann. This can be found on Interview‘s website here.
It was previously noted that the site would be revised and up-to-date by the end of August but this date has now passed without any change. At this time, we’ll speculate that all updates will be in place by the end of November at the latest.
The site is currently behind on a number of things and has gone by without proper updates for close to a year now. We apologise for this. These problems come to be because the site is at this time maintained and updated by a single person. For an individual, keeping on top of things here is at times quite overwhelming and bothersome, particularly around the release of a new film as now. However, in time the site will be revised so that select others will be able to easily update the news and with that these long periods of site inactivity should hopefully come to an end. We expect this update to be in place by the end of August.
Mac and Plac, a new short film by Harmony Korine, as well as The Dirty Ones, directed by Brent Stewart, will be screening together on January 30 as part of the Projections film festival. The festival will take place in Culver City, California, from January 16 through to February 20. Admission is free for all screenings. For more information visit the website here.
The premise of Mac and Plac, which has previously played elsewhere, is given on the Projections website as so:
Mak And Plac is set in an anonymous basement where two Siamese brothers berate each other over and over while a man with a prosthetic face masturbates and attempts to have sex with a refrigerator. Chaos ensues. Constructed from outtakes from Korine’s most recent feature film, Trash Humpers.
