Alex Kershaw: Something Other Than its Own Mass
Something Other Than its Own Mass is a video installation by Los Angeles-based artist and filmmaker Alex Kershaw. The multichannel video installation that gives life to a simple paradox — hunters love what they kill. Through the lives of six principal characters from the Northeastern United States, the work teases out the unlikely ways that hunters engage with nature. In pacts oscillating between trust and domination, hunting cultivates empathetic and animist engagements via process of seduction, where the hunters’ libidinal energies are displaced onto the animal. Opens December 14 and runs through January 4.
