STATUS: PERFORMANCE SERIES

Directed by Andre Bato and Kristian Kirk, STATUS: PERFORMANCE SERIES is the first motion picture series under the GAZE art showcase. Each short film focuses on the relationship between the camera and its subjects by capturing the versatilities of the human body within a confined space. STATUS bridges a one of a kind cast and subcultures with art direction, culminating into an assemblage of vignettes: a collection of five synchronized films, from female bodybuilders, to mosh pitting skinheads, the “first season” and installment of this showcase will also be exhibited as a set of wide-screen projections, along with custom body sculptures by Kristian Kirk as part of the first GAZE event in New York City. STATUS Episodes premiered on both NOWNESS and Office Magazine.
