NEW ZINE: Ablation


For 2011 I will be making a publication every other month. January's NEGATIVE LITANIES was the compendium documenting the monthly 2010 series and exhibition. For March I present ABLATION..

ABLATION. contains video stills cut from a video I shot featuring a live set of power-electronics group BLOODYMINDED originally intended to be edited into an installation but never quite finding the right cut. This set dates from 2007 when BLOODYMINDED played with Carlos Giffoni, Burning Star Core and Prurient at the Flowershop in Chicago.

Instead of being cut into a video the images were removed as stills from the source footage, enlarged and placed into a new sequence that emphasizes the dark setting and intensity of this unique group's intense live performance. The title of this zine come from Mark Solotroff's inimitable lyrics from the album Gift Givers and seeks to link the zine's process with its subject.
