Slow Space, a film and art project by fellow curator at the Directors Lounge, Klaus W. Eisenlohr will be screened tomorrow at The International Experimental Cinema Exposition (TIE), the highly acclaimed exhibition of avant-garde cinema in Denver, Colorado.
Slow Space takes the viewer on a visual trip through places of glass architecture in Chicago. Filmed entirely within the urban constructed environment that makes up this contemporary North American city, Slow Space is a visually arresting investigation into how space is described, defined and ultimately experienced. Berlin filmmaker Klaus W. Eisenlohr commutes this relationship with the outside ‘world’ via an array of constructed transparencies in the glass domes and atriums that formed so much of architecture’s modernist preoccupation for a constructed inside/outside dialectic. Descriptions and ultimately opinions on the status of public space in Chicago form part of the film’s identity via a series of interviews conducted from the participant’s private domains. Street scenes with performers complement this film essay. With his project in Chicago, the artist Klaus W. Eisenlohr has investigated the relationship between the body and the urban architectural environment over the time period of three years.
