ILO, ILO by Anthony Chen. Set in Singapore during the 1997 Asian financial crisis. Ilo Ilo chronicles the day-to-day drama of the Lim family – troublesome grade-schooler Jiale and his overstressed parents, Heck and Leng. Comfortably middleclass and with another baby on the way, they hire Teresa, a Filipino immigrant, as a live-in maid and nanny. An outsider in both the family and Singapore itself, Teresa initially struggles to manage Jiale’s antics and find her footing in her new community. The two eventually form a unique bond, but just as Teresa becomes an unspoken part of the family, unforeseen circumstances in an uncertain economy will challenge the new normal yet again.

BURNING BUNGALOWS: EXPERIMENTAL FILM & ANIMATION ON THE ROAD FROM LOS ANGELES presented by CINEMARESET. ‘Burning Bungalows‘ brings new and unseen experimental film from Los Angeles on the road this coming April.  With a handmade mix of animation and live action on video, super 8, 16mm and 35mm slides we’re covering all the bases for an eclectic hour and 20 minutes.  The films tend toward an ethereal conjuring of spirits with a dystopian punk attitude.

Cosmo Segurson

Vulgarians 1, 2, 3
16mm, 2012-2014, 7min
This science fiction project focuses on communication, perspective, and the future of mass media and advertising.  On a fractured Earth in the near future, our social etiquette will adapt to primitive ways of representation: masks and tin cans replacing social media, technology, and cell phones.

Cat In the Lighthouse (working title)
hand processed 16mm, 2014, 5min
Combining miniatures, stop motion animation, puppetry, and the filmmaker’s pet cat “Boo”, this short fable explores the wordless bond between a lonely fisherman and the cat that saves his life. Accompanied by a live soundtrack.

Alee Peoples

Waxing and Milking super 8, 2014, 9min 30sec
A companion piece to Boys of Summer, 2009, Waxing and Milking mimics music video tropes and equates Los Angeles’ favorite food snack, the taco, to a lady’s special parts.

Them Oracles 16mm, 2012, 7min 30sec
Them Oracles is a skeptic investigation of what an oracle can be and what it would sound like.  Human desire and blind faith allow, and maybe even will these mystic soothsayers to exist.

Abby Banks

Remake of Skate Witches (Danny Plotnick,1986)(working title)
video, 2014, approximately 5min
Abby makes her own version of Skate Witches, inspired by Danny Plotnick’s super 8 films, while re-learning to skate herself.

Tour Slide Show 35mm slides, 2014, approximately 12 min
A 35mm slide presentation of Bank’s photos taken along various music tours across the country.  Tour vans, porches, weird Americana from the Midwest and the like are accompanied by narration and a cassette montage.

Kelly Sears

He Hates To Be Second video, 2008, 3min
An erasure poem constructed out of discarded magazines, excess bravado and Cold War aggression.

Nancy Jean Tucker

Athrú video, 2014, 8min

John Cannizzaro

The Temptation of St.Anthony super 8 to video, 2012, 3min
A sequence from a work-in-progress on the life of the great desert Hermit-Saint.  Retiring to the desert to pray, Anthony is besieged by devils, temptations, and visions culminating in a blasphemous crucifixion that mocks his piety.  Shot in one continuous take, a living tableau depicting a tortured mind.

Lisa Marr

Intolerance super 8 to video, 2010, 3min
DW Griffith battles it out with Moutain Dew at Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue.

Please Note:  Due to a street closure for the filming of T5, We will be closed on Wednesday & Thursday, April 23 & 24

Tulane Glass Students Shine at OCH Gallery

The OCH Gallery @ Zeitgeist is proud to present Clear Aspects: Conversations in Glass, an exhibition featuring the work of Tulane University undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in its world renowned glass program. As one of the country’s oldest university hot glass programs, the variety of works produced tends to push the envelope of glass as an artistic medium, making it relevant in contemporary art today.

The students featured represent a variety of studio techniques, including glass blowing and casting.  Master of Fine Arts students Jeffrey Stenbom and Daniel Alley came to Tulane with experience in studio arts, and are refining their sculptural art practice in both large scale works and more intimate pieces. Other works included are from Bachelor of Fine Arts students Claire Beauchamp, Noah Conlay, Addi Ginsberg, Eric Hess, Ben Kim, Tom Lobell, and Petr Verner.

As a medium, glass offers challenges to the artist that also create opportunities to push the limits of what it can do when formed into luminous, fragile works of art. While several pieces included in the show seem quite solid and settled, they exist in a state that is scientifically still considered a liquid, even at room temperature. Over time, glass “melts” and is pulled downward by the forces of gravity. Many of the more delicate pieces included in the show feature thin or drawn out sections, a reminder of what glass really is- fragile.

This exhibition will be held in conjunction with the April 12th OCH Student Art Market, which will feature works of art from other area colleges and teaching centers. Please join us for the opening reception which takes place from 10am-3pm. The show will also be available for viewing by appointment daily through May 2nd by contacting the gallery at ochgallery@gmail.com.

The OCH Gallery strives to present art by emerging and established contemporary artists living and working in the  New Orleans area.  The gallery is free, open to the public and family and pet friendly and with plenty of parking.

More information on this exhibition can be found on our website, http://www.ochgallery.com or by contacting us at ochgallery@gmail.com with any questions or comments. Find us on Facebook (OCH Gallery) or Twitter (@OCHGallery).
