Hubbard / Birchler:В 
Eight, Eighteen

October 12, 2013–March 29, 2014

Linda Pace Foundation
114 Camp Street
San Antonio, TX
Guided tours by appointment

Cinema, the subtleties of its components and its history, form the core of Hubbard/Birchler’s artistic work. The Hubbard/Birchler exhibition will feature two video installations, including the world premiere ofВ Eighteen,В 2013, and a selection of other video and photographic work, includingВ Eight, 2001, whichВ revolves around the birthday of an eight-year-old girl staring out a window into a thunderous rainy night. As the young actorВ moves outside and back in, time and space are blurred as boundaries, and as the video loops, it is unclear which scene comes first.

Almost a decade later, Hubbard/Birchler began searching for the actor they had cast inВ Eight.В They found her in Boston, where she has grown up to become a dancer. Thus began the next video project,В Eighteen, whichВ picks up on the same character in a scene of her eighteenth birthday party.В  As in the workВ Eight, Hubbard/Birchler have developed a narrative perspective that is unsettled and does not come to closure. As the protagonist journeys from one place to another, linear time, fact and fiction, and the solidity of physical shelter constantly slip around her. Steady, uninterrupted camera movements straddle constructed and actual locations, inside and outside, rain and sunshine, day and night, summer and winter.

EighteenВ incorporates three musical compositions, arranged and performed on guitar: the GymnopГ©dies by Erik Satie. Written for piano in 1888, these movements share a common structure and collectively are regarded as an important precursor to modern ambient music.В 

The exhibition will be on view by appointment only at The Linda Pace Foundation, San Antonio, Texas, October 12, 2013 through March 29, 2014. To schedule a viewing, emailВ, or write to: Visitor Services, Linda Pace Foundation, P.O. Box 830607, San Antonio, Texas 78283.В  In conjunction withВ Eight, Eighteen, Anne Ellegood, Senior Curator, Hammer Museum, UCLA, and the artists will discuss aspects of the exhibition in a public talk on a date and location to be announced.В
