Hi All,

For those in or near Chicago...

White Light Cinema Presents
The Search: New Videos by Kyle Canterbury
Saturday, November 21 ­ 8:00 pm
At The Nightingale (1084 N. Milwaukee Ave.)
For the past several years Kyle Canterbury has been quietly, in the shadows,
creating a stunning body of work. His videos are among the richest
expressions of cinema of the last several decades. His eye for color and
texture, rhythm and composition, rival many of the masters of experimental
film. But comparisons are facile‹Canterbury is working different terrain. He
is rooting to the primal essence of the video medium unlike anyone before.
In the last year or two, Canterbury has moved from a more formal exploration
of video specificity to something less definable. His recent landscape works
(for lack of a better description) are ineffable, hauntingly beautiful
pieces that frequently operate at the margins of movement. Tiny, almost
imperceptible, gestures create micro-rhythms and call for an actively
engaged viewer.
Whether it is the Utah desert, a formal garden, or the screen of a window,
Canterbury is not so much concerned with what we see as he is with how we
see it.
