LOVID | BERLIN
EXPANDED.ART is pleased to present the solo exhibition TANGIBLE TIMELINES by LOVID, on view at the gallery in Berlin from 29 JUNE to 19 JULY 2023. The exhibition is comprised of videos, still images, and textile works, offering a cross-section of LoVid’s distinctive artistic practice. The historic video works on view explore their relevance for the current generative art movement.
LoVid incorporates media and materials to engage a wide range of techniques and processes, including DIY electrical engineering, generative code, fabric, and stained glass. Throughout multiple projects, LoVid maintains a signature visual and sonic aesthetic of color, pattern, and texture density, incorporating glitch and noise.
Their work navigates between the handmade and the machine-produced, highlighting the challenges and possibilities of the networked age, particularly a sense of the world that intermixes virtual and physical, permanence and the ephemeral, fantasy and reality, hope, connectivity, and isolation.
SOUVENIRHRZ (2010), a collection of analog video outputs, was created during the artists' fellowship at the Institute of Electronic Arts at Alfred University in New York City, capturing key moments of LoVid's process in their analog video studio. SOUVENIRHRZ studies how nature and people influence and interact with one another through the synchronicity of humans and instruments.
The video collection TIME SENSITIVE (2008) by LoVid addresses time and explores the wide dimensionality of the term. Consisting of 12 individual videos, the collection was recorded with the artists’s own engineered and handmade audio/video synthesizer, Sync Armonica, which is based on historic schematics by artist engineer Dan Sandin and supported by the Experimental Television Center and Eyebeam residency.
LoVid is an artist duo comprised of Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus who have been working together since 2000.
LoVid’s work has been exhibited, performed, screened, and presented internationally at, among others, MoMA, Postmasters Gallery, Honor Fraser, bitforms Gallery, SPRING/BREAK Art Show, Parrish Museum, The Jewish Museum, The Kitchen, Daejeon Museum, Netherland Media Art Institute, New Museum, ICA London, and International Film Festival Rotterdam.
LoVid’s projects have received support from organizations including: Wave Hill, The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, Graham Foundation, UC Santa Barbara, Signal Culture, Cue Art Foundation, Eyebeam, Harvestworks, Wave Farm, Rhizome, Franklin Furnace, Turbulence.org, New York Foundation for the Arts, Lower Manhattan Cultural Center, Experimental TV Center, NY State Council of the Arts, and Greenwall Foundation.
