Artist talk and screening event:
Saturday, July 8th

Telic Arts Exchange is pleased to present “The Impossibility of the Beach”, the first solo exhibition in the United States for Spanish artist, Pascual Sisto. “The Impossibility of the Beach” includes “Push / Pull”, Sisto’s latest video installation and “28 Years in the Implicate Order”. In both pieces, Sisto rearranges the mundane through his own digital intervention to produce mesmerizing, impossible realities.
“Push / Pull”, Two channel video loop.
Two video projections face each other in a darkened room. A never-ending, tunnel-like flow of automobiles passes from one screen to the other, approaching in white and receding in red. These opposing, kaleidoscopic images create a suspended state for the viewer, neither coming nor going, in the space in between.
“28 Years in the Implicate Order”, Single channel video loop.
The video consists of a locked off shot of an empty parking lot. A centered sodium vapor light illuminates the night landscape as 28 red balls bounce up and down in a chaotic random order. As the video reaches its mid point, the balls align themselves until they reach the point where they all bounce at the same precise moment, before falling back into chaos.

Born in Ferrol, Spain and raised in Barcelona, Spain, Pascual Sisto graduated with a BFA in film from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. His film work has been shown widely, including the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Museum of Latin American Art (MALBA) in Buenos Aires, TVE (Spanish Television) and the Los Angeles International Short Film Festival. Recent exhibitions include the Reencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin Festival (Paris, France), Viper Festival (Basel, Switzerland), AKA Gallery (Rome, Italy), Ego Park Gallery (Oakland, USA), Gallery 825 (Los Angeles, USA) and the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Park (Los Angeles, USA).

Artist talk and curated Screening – Saturday July 8th, 7.30pm

Artist Pascual Sisto curates a collection of contemporary video works dealing with the digital intervention in the everyday. Works ranging from the seamless visual manipula-tion of Chihcheng Peng and fluid decomposition of Takeshi Murata’s pixel fabric, to the otherworldliness of Zhao Liang’s documented realities and Minou Norouzi’s or Corine Stübi’s psychological landscapes of incubated desire.
