FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


“TALKIE PHARMAKON” DOMINATES HANDOUTS OF IMAGINED INSTITUTIONAL HERO AWARDS – POISONS SOME, CURES UNKNOWN


“FILM” BOASTS A DOMESTIC BOX OFFICE GROSS OF NOTHING MORE THAN HAND HELD SIMPLE MAGIC AND DEEP FASCINATION


Feature Hudson Foundation, New York City, May 11, 2018Mission Fantastic presents SEASONS PREMIERE, Grant Worth’s first solo exhibition in five years and his first with Feature Hudson Foundation. The centerpiece, “Talkie Pharmakon,” is a feature length video manifesto for being, presented in four seasonal chapters. Worth describes the picture as “a sound designed-home movie-performance poem starring landscapes of the North American continent, Worth’s biological family, and a playful community of lighthouses whose hearts are woven together by living room dance floors and a cat’s cradle of glittered threads.” Each chapter features a unique style of aural exploration and a narration of texts written by John Muir, Terence McKenna, Bill McKibben, Lynn Margulis and Dorion Sagan, Albert Hofmann, Donna J. Haraway, and (The Original) Roseanne Barr.


SEASONS PREMIERE also features Worth’s first adventures in sculpture – a series of familiar awards fashioned out of the chemical element Bismuth (atomic number 83) as well a series of movie posters advertising collaboration and Staying with the Trouble.


Talkie Pharmakon” showtimes begin 30 minutes after the gallery opens and every 90 minutes until close. SEASONS PREMIERE opens at Feature Hudson Foundation May 11th with red carpet festivities from 6-8pm. Curtains down August 4th, 2018.

My friend and mentor Elaine Mayes screens her movie tonight at NYU. I started working on this video with Elaine in 2001. The movie is finally finished and I couldn't be more proud of her, and this work, and that I could be part of it. 


While we were working together at her home in the Catskills, I found her very early one morning, already in the studio - she had jumped out of bed with the birds in order to remake the credit tag with my name embarrassingly large.

Recess to the rescue! 


Overflowing gratitude for the organization and for their continued support. Recess' annual benefit is just around the corner.


My donation this year is from a series of imagined constellations created in 2008 called "Shine On - Deities, Sacred Animals, and Moral Tales." The project was shot on the last SX-70 Polaroid film I ever used. As each image developed, I made a web of marks in the emulsion of the film. The unexpected behavior of the expired chemicals amplified the adventure of analog star gazing. 

View the entire collection HERE.


p.s. Remember when I was married to five humans and making work as FCKNLZ? Recess was a huge support for us!
