Jose Carlos Casado:
Postmasters Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of two new exhibitions
“well-dressed lies” - an exhibition of video works by a Spanish artist Jose Carlos Casado. The show will be on view from June 19 until July 24, 2004.
In a catalogue for Casado's solo exhibition at Fundacion Picasso in Malaga, Spain, Anne Barlow describes the artist's work as presenting timely, beautiful, and perturbing insights into the complexity of our present and future "human states". The central project in the show is a two channel video installation titled "Pandora's Box (revisited).v04" - an interconnected two-screen video that combines real life footage with digital imaging, special effects, and graphics creating a visually intense tale of perpetual re-birth and the future of "biological body." Carnal beings and androids, birds and bees, and re-written myths of procreation invigorate the umbilically tied organic and technological realms. Casado is a 2004 recipient of NYFA Artists' Fellowship in Video.
