Join BOFFO and Robert Andy Coombs for this week's screening of a selection of short video pieces by artist Peter Clough

Peter Clough uses video, photography, sculpture and projection to create hybrid spaces that collapse opposing elements into a singular image. In still life photographs, Clough arranges simple sculptures on a table and lights the scene with digital projection. The resulting image is a hybrid of real and digital spaces, where corporeal forms blend with projected light. In some cases, Clough uses images of his own body to question the boundaries between inside and outside, subject and object. Scribble drawings are indexes of the human hand and collide with the hard geometry of cubes and surfaces. By using projected photographs as the light source for subsequent photographs, Clough doubles the act of photography, allowing two disparate images to coexist.

In conjunction with Robert Andy Coombs’ BOFFO Residency Fire Island.
