Duration of Video: THE GALANTY SHOW (15 minutes)

THE GALANTY SHOW is a silent digital video, 2009.


Everything you see is a shadow. Pirates, clowns, a jumping ballerina, hula hooping bunnies, a yogini and other hybrids combine to form this world of x-ray play. Spaces are drawn open to reveal multiple vignettes that are happening in another place at another time.


These are all real time actions with the exception of one, with its frames dropped and time condensed. She is a hybrid, part clown and part magician, slowly assembling a hat as a vehicle for her own transformation. These actions celebrate the heroic and vulnerable nature of simple gestures. Balloons swell, objects orbit, coils expand and bubbles fall slowly as accumulated gestures combine to take everyday actions into the realm of the extraordinary.
