Film and Electronic Arts Program presents

Xander Marro

Movies and at Least One Live Soundtrack

Thursday, April 4, 2013

[Xander Marro]

Artist Xander Marro presents a collection of short films and videos made over a span of 15 years in Providence RI.  Mostly originating on 16mm film and originally presented with live soundtrack, the program's common themes include: DIY living quarters, puppeteer frontiers, too many cats, winter, witches, wishes, girls, girls, girls, silkscreen messes, zine libraries, drum kits, fairy tales, cut paper, trinkets stored in drawers, the quest for true love, the junk of this material world, alchemy/regular chemistry, the magic of unlikely alliances, and the spirits of the night. Dina Deitsch of the DeCordova Museum writes, "Marro’s work is generally low-tech and handmade and embedded with a community of collective art-making.  Typically using arcane pieces of visual culture to create strange and fantastic worlds, this almost Luddite approach presents an alternative to today’s fast-paced media-driven environments."
