In The Realm of Rare and Analogous Accidents

Written by Thomas Büsch on . Posted in Footprints, The Passenger

“Inspired by the larger than life cinema history of Texas, Los Americanos by the Iranian artist Morehshin Allahyari explores the ephemeral through various cinema metaphors for identity, history and culture. Each artist has created his or her own independent project examining everyday life in Texas – past, present or future. The vignettes address a range of topics, including visual rhetoric and psychogeography, astrological facts and fiction, the contrast between life and film, self-portraiture and cultural archetypes. Together, the chapters coalesce into a film without a linear narrative and become a meditation on the present moment. There is no beginning or end to Los Americanos, just movement forward.”

Los Americanos is on view at Dallas Contemporary and the American Airlines Center.

Morehshin Allahyari is a new media artist and an art activist. She was born and raised in Iran and moved to the United States in 2007. Her creative and research interest encompasses experimental 3D animation, digital filmmaking, installation, performance and extensive activity as a curator and producer. Coming from a social science background, the topics of her practice include political and social art, creative writing, art activism, community building and collaborative art. Morehshin’s animated films and curatorial projects have received world wide acclaim.
