ArtYard presents short “object-performance” films online starting today

ArtYard presents “Re/Bound: A Virtual Presentation of Short Object-Performance Films.” Curated by Sarah Finn and featuring original works by Andrew Murdock, Rourou Ye, Robin Frohardt and Hyung Seok Jeon, who straddle the disciplines of live performance, puppetry and film.

The artists were invited to create a two-to-three minute short film inspired by the notion of springing back, incorporating and transforming a set of three basic materials (paper, wire and water), that all of the artists had on hand while sheltering-in-place. The artists were invited to show the vast potential that exists in simple materials, and the ability to use these materials as building blocks or keyholes to envision new, imagined (micro)worlds, with a time constraint of 10 days to create and film these original, new works.

Their short films will be released one at a time over the course of July, premiering on ArtYard’s website and on ArtYard’s Instagram account, on Thursday July 2, July 9, July 16 and July 23.
