We Are Winning, Don’t Forget: Short works by Jean-Gabriel Périot

THE BARBARIANS-1

Jean-Gabriel Periot played his collage films at ATA last night. Poetic and unnerving, the images rain onto the screen; they layer on top of one another.

No, I’m serious: this makes perfect sense. What carries… Read more »
