    Recent Video Work by Ernie Gehr

    Work in Progress

    Directed by Ernie Gehr, Appearing in Person
    US 2012, digital video, color, 32 min
    In this fascinating exploration of the rich, elusive qualities of the video surface, Gehr layers transparent and translucent repetitions of a complex urban street scene to form a mesmerizing tableau.


    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.
