Holding Breath

Sixth Annual Open Call for Works in Video

4 January – 2 February 2019

Aggregate Space Gallery is pleased to present this selection of video works from our annual open call for time-based media. For the 6th time, we intentionally chose to forgo a themed call so that a cohesive show may be discovered in the relationships between some of the 200+ submissions. This year, the works that stood out were all surreal depictions of personal struggle with outside forces, some via artist confessionals, and some presented more cryptically. The video pieces that will be playing concurrently within Holding Breath each contain one-sided conversations either with an implied partner or no-one at all, often relying on humor as a weapon to disarm the viewer from the frustrations, anxiety, and loneliness under the surface of each piece.

Opening Reception 4 January 6-10pm

Artists Talk 19 January 11 am

First Friday Event 1 February 5-8pm
