Jesse Fleming | The Snail and the Razor
THE COMPANY is pleased to announce a week-long screening of Jesse Fleming’s newest video work, The Snail and the Razor. The video will screen continuously during gallery hours from Wednesday, January 11th to January 18th, 2012. A special evening viewing and reception with the artist will take place January 14th from 7 – 9pm.
The Snail and the Razor depicts an interaction between a snail and an erect razor blade. Watching the video in real time is at once suspenseful, agonizing, humorous, heroic, suicidal, and inevitably transcendent. The action starts small, growing as we reflect on, and identify with, the journey of the slow moving creature.
