Membrane Lane

Sunday Afternoon with Chaz

Screening related to Nine Lives selected by Charles Irvin

In his drawings, videos and paintings, Charles Irvin takes absurdity to the extreme. For this special screening, Irvin presents his new video, Membrane Lane. Adopting the style of conspiracy theory documentaries such as Loose Change and Zeitgeist, Membrane Lane explores the origins and agenda of the False Memory Syndrome Foundation, a support group for individuals who claim to have been falsely accused of perpetrating child sexual abuse. Irvin mixes found footage with live action scenes, moving from highly-authoritative moments to silly and rebellious characters and scenarios, keeping everything slightly off balance. Irvin will also show a selection of earlier shorts, and the screening will be followed with an informal Q&A with the artist.
