LEWIS KLAHR, ENGRAM SEPALS
Collage artist Lewis Klahr introduces Engram Sepals, his celebrated sequence of seven films which traces ‘a trajectory of American intoxication’. Appropriating the imagery of pop culture from the aspirational 1940s through the free-loving 1970s, Klahr’s cut-out animations draw us into a dreamlike world of intrigue, anxiety and lust. A surreal and atmospheric epic propelled by an evocative soundtrack featuring Frank Sinatra, Morton Feldman, Mercury Rev and The Stooges.
