Kerry Tribe (American, b. 1973) uses the formal mechanics of the moving image to explore the instability of recall and the subjective nature of perception. This evening culminates in a live performance of Tribe’s Critical Mass, based on the 1971 Hollis Frampton film of the same name. In Frampton’s film, an improvised argument between a young man and woman is captured, copied, cut up, and reassembled to produce a frenetically edited, highly structural, distanced yet evocative work. Tribe’s piece reenacts Frampton’s film cut-by-cut with two live actors, inverting the role of film as performance document while exploring the historical specificity of language and gender. The performance has undergone a series of evolutions since it was first staged at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 2010; this will be the New York premiere of the new iteration, with actors Emelie O’Hara and Nick Huff.
