Irina Gabiani in “Fragments” at Arnot Art Museum, New York, 6-7th April, 2011



Fragments is a collaborative video art project headed by Michael Chang (DK) and Marty McCutcheon (US). Chang initiated the project in 2009 when he invited fifteen artists to collaborate on three threads of video art while adhering to specific rules. Fragments had its premiere in July 2009 in Berkeley, California at the community screening center run by McCutcheon, Berkeley Commonplace. During the event, three threads of video were projected onto a screen composed of the white-washed fragments of broken objects. Junk! The premiere event featured music from the Californian band Slowness’ pre-release debut EP as well as live experimental video performances by visitors and members of the Commonplace Community. In April 2011, the Arnot Art Museum in Elmira, New York will host a new version of Fragments as part of a Museum series focusing on collaboration.
