Brian Bress, his you tube videos are amazing! I recently was introduced to his work and thought it really good and really interesting. Video is not a medium I am at once conversant with but yet still a major form of art and expression. So today’s post is on this great artist. If you google his name, and go to YouTube, you can see his amazing work.
I do hope you enjoy this post,
Brian Bress’ photographs and videos are full of odd characters, and anachronistic objects. Vestiges of familiar narratives are everywhere, but are made strange through recombination. He performs each step of production, both behind and in front of the
camera. This singularity of sensibility has uneasy moments for viewers accustomed to the overproduced standards of television and commercials. Bress’ movies distinguish themselves by employing Brechtian devices at expense of the auteur rather than the audience. In his videos the high holy efforts of early performance and conceptual art are recast to exploit the comedic desires of a YouTube public.
