Public Notice: An Exhausted Film
BMW Guggenheim Lab, NYC, 2011

A live-cinema performance by Ofri Cnaani, Cheryl Kaplan and Kathryn Alexander.

Powered by a failing battery, "Public Notice" is an episodic tale that begins with a mock-trial. The work combines folly, tragedy and history as it travels peripatetically through urban and peripheral landscapes and international borders. This frame-by-frame account, created from an unstable visual system, examines loyalty to country and place. The cinematic event ends when the battery runs out of power.
