Body Temperature by Ali Van

Ali Van will present a screening of her film Body Temperature, described by the artist as a “spacetimeflesh, a paleolithic inquiry, a moon of breath, a film of water, a seventh rain leaping thirds, stillatim. It takes its pulse into Bataille's blush and finds within his fane an extrusion of illocution for optic eat shared, artesian fold warmed, vauclusian flow released - to transpose eau.” The film is approximately 28 minutes long and will be followed by a signing of its companion book.

Ali Van, born in New York and nurtured in Hong Kong, received her M.F.A. from Columbia University School of the Arts and her B.A. from Yale University.
