The Made in NY Media Center by IFP is proud to present Golgotha, a solo show of new animations by visual artist Sean Capone.

 

From the artist:

"These animation works are part of my general long-term project to explore the visual forms & motifs associated with troublesome, power-laden discourses such as spirituality, ornamentation and decoration, modernism, etc., and to isolate and re-frame them in the context of contemporary digital moving imagery and ‘expanded cinema.’

"Golgotha represents my desire to explore of the symbol of the cross strictly as a graphic form or icon that remains fixed within a scalable field of generative “whirling forces” — adapting the ideas here of Paul Klee and Sol LeWitt — a field of metamorphic forms in a state of constant autoproduction and erasure, always in flux. The term ‘icon’ is freighted, of course, with its own historical connotations and religious narratives which I’d hoped to extricate myself from; the title Golgotha — and the work’s apparent triptych/cabinet compositional structure — is my concession to the tacit impossibility of this goal."
