Steve Brudniak Artist Talk and Documentary Screening
On Wednesday, July 28th at 6:30, Austin-based artist Steve Brudniak will give an Artist Talk at Blue Star Contemporary Art Center. Steve will discuss the work in his Gallery 4 exhibition, Noumenon, and Other New Work, as well as his pieces Astogreneris Mementos, which were launched into orbit and exhibited on the International Space Station in 2008. Brudniak will also screen two short documentaries on his work, Steve Brudniak: Noumenon and Ulteriaphobia, The Art of Steve Brudniak.
Steve Brudniak: Noumenon is a 20-minute documentary chronicling the making of two sculptures by the artist, Noumenon and The Vegus Leviathan. Like most of Brudniaks work, the process is often long and laborious. The pieces documented each required more than 6 months to complete, incorporating active and passive visual effect elements requiring a great deal of engineering.
Brudniak explains and demonstrates some of these processes and elaborates on the conceptual meanings imbued in the art through narration of documentary footage and images compiled and edited by video artist/actor Wiley Wiggins
Ulteriaphobia, The Art of Steve Brudniak was produced in the mid 90s and documents the artists work of that period. Filmmaker and projection artist Luke Savisky follows Brudniak through several weeks in the life of the artist on this short tour through galleries, art collections, a foundry, and the artists studio.
