The Real and the Hyper-Real: Films and Videos by Scott Stark

“This is a magisterial composition, the work of a visionary artist, a true poet, who is in complete command
of his medium.” —Gene Youngblood

Jack H. Skirball Series

Scott Stark’s films, videos and installations are kinetic revelations that can be shocking, mesmerizing and narratively rich. Each is a distinctive cultural and aesthetic adventure with its own conceptual rigor. His films include the mysterious and delightful Hotel Cartograph (1983); More Than Meets the Eye: Remaking Jane Fonda (2001/06), Stark’s witty response to this American icon; Speechless (2008), a visceral collision of anatomy with rough-hewn surfaces; Traces (2012), a flickering play of fragmented objects; and his masterful The Realist (2013), a “doomed love” melodrama peopled with department store mannequins and located in the visually heightened universe of clothing displays, fashion islands and storefront windows.
