@ Silo City
Squeaky Wheel co-presents an edition of Just Buffalo’s signature summer reading series with a special screening by artist Mary Helena Clark. Clark will be journeying to Buffalo to present her hypnotic, uncanny 20 minute film Delphi Falls, which recently had its premiere at the 2017 Whitney Biennial, and which Clark worked on during her Workspace residency at Squeaky Wheel in 2016. Join us at Silo City as we welcome back the artist for a night of dreamy music, poetry, and film, including Aidan Ryan, Cages, and Colorado-based poet and operator of the Dream Delivery Service, Mathias Svalina.
Mary Helena Clark is an artist working in film, video, and installation. Her work uses the language of collage, often bringing together disparate subjects and styles that suggest an exterior logic or code, to explore dissociative states through cinema. Clark’s films have screened at the 2017 Whitney Biennial (New York), the Wexner Center for the Arts (Columbus), Grazer Kunstverein (Graz, Austria), Anthology Film Archives (New York), Museum of Contemporary Photography (Chicago), National Gallery of Art (Washington DC), the Swedish Film Institute (Stockholm), and at the International Film Festival Rotterdam, the New York Film Festival, the Toronto International Film Festival, BFI London Film Festival, the Hong Kong International Film Festival, and BAMcinématek, among others. She has curated film programs at Altman Siegel (San Francisco), The Nightingale (Chicago), and Bridget Donahue (New York).
