    ABRACADABRA

    Directed by Ernie Gehr, Appearing in Person
    US 2009, digital video, b/w & color, 29 min
    A newly reedited version of Gehr’s celebrated triptych meditation on pre- and early cinema and the magical properties of the moving image.

    Auto-Collidor XV
    Auto-Collidor XVI

    Directed by Ernie Gehr, Appearing in Person
    US 2011, digital video, color, 9 min & 13 min
    Gehr’s on-going but still unscreened Auto-Collidor series is an important extension of his long interest in the automobile as a privileged “vehicle” for his visual imagination. While Auto-Collidor XV embracing a pure painterly abstraction – Agnes Martin at 150 mph – Auto-Collidor XVI plays a mechanized origami game with the image, collapsing vehicles into hypnotic, accordion-like instruments.
