WNDX is excited to close our 2020 online festival with a live performance by filmmaker and performance artist Joshua Gen Solondz, presented in collaboration with our friends at Send + Receive. Josh’s performance work with both sound and image regularly prioritizing physiological sensation over linguistic expression. Here, using hand-manipulated 35mm slides and an abrasive analog synth soundtrack, Solondz will explore materiality, mourning and sinister resonance through physical intervention. He will be broadcasting from his studio in Brooklyn, New York. Of his performance at WNDX, Josh tells us:

“The materials for this performance primarily are from two sources:

35mm trailers, mostly The Ladykillers, which came from the artist Luther Price, following a workshop I took with him in 2014. “I don’t like to waste anything,” he said to me.

I consider Luther to be one of my “big heroes” and I am still mourning his passing this summer.

The second source is a collection of art history slides from my bandmate, the videomaker and writer Jim Supanick. They were a gift for helping him move out of New York. Jim is a dear friend that helped enrich my life in Brooklyn with our Sunday practice sessions, enlightening co-rambles at screenings and shows, and adventures inside and out of town. We’re figuring out how to collaborate remotely.

It was from his gift and with Luther’s ethos in mind that I began to assemble these slides. To them, I added my own materials that had become unusable for one reason or another. A broken sprocket here, a bent frame there, vinegar syndrome…”
