QUÉ TAN LEJOS

UNA PELÍCUlA DE
HIROSHI SUNAIRI

Sinopsis:
El poeta José Rico regresa a Juárez, su ciudad natal. Su propósito es filmar un documental sobre personajes de los que escribió una década atrás. Hugo, un abogado otrora encarcelado injustamente por tráfico de drogas; Luis Alberto, un periodista que arrostró los embates de la descomposición social; Nabil, una joven poeta que escribe sobre la ciudad en un tono intimista y tenue; Julieta, una científica y ambientalista comprometida con la preservación de los mantos acuíferos de Juárez, todos estos personajes recitan los poemas escritos sobre ellos y dan su impresión del paso del tiempo y de los cambios ocurridos desde entonces. José también da voz a su hermano menor y a su padre, quien vio el auge y la caída del TLCAN. Este film explora la relación entre realidad y creación artística, los valores personales y los universales, en el contexto cambiante de una ciudad que emergió de la narcoguerra reciente.

How Far Am I

A FILM BY
HIROSHI SUNAIRI

 

Synopsis:
Jose Rico is a poet returning to his home town, Juarez. He aims to make a documentary about people he wrote about a decade ago. Hugo, a current lawyer once wrongfully imprisoned for drug trafficking; Luis Alberto, a journalist that faced the ravages of social disruption; Nabil, a young poet who writes about the city with an inward, soft-spoken tone; Julieta, a scientist and environmentalist committed to preserving Juarez water reserves, recite poems written about them and give their impression of how time has gone by and the changes that occurred since. Jose also turns his camera to give voice to his younger brother, and his father, who thrived in the heyday of NAFTA. This film explores the relationship between reality and creation/poetry, personal and universal values in the changing context of a city that rose out of the drug war.

ROADSIDE PICNIC – THE ZONE

at CHAMBERS FINE ART 前波画廊
522 West 19th Street
New York, NY 10011

Exhibition Date: December 14, 2017 – January 27, 2018
Opening Reception: Thursday, December 14, 2017, 6-8pm

Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, “Roadside Picnic,” 1971
Rediscovered Classic, Chicago Review Press 2012

Chambers Fine Art is pleased to present ROADSIDE PICNIC, a group exhibition of Chinese artists living in New York, curated by Hiroshi Sunairi and Yixin (Sam) Gong. The title of the exhibition is taken from a short science fiction novel written by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky in 1971. The 1979 art film “Stalker,” directed by Andrei Tarkovsky, is loosely based on the novel, with a screenplay written by the Strugatsky brothers. Set in the indefinite future, the “Stalker” works as a guide who leads people through the “Zone”, an area in which the normal laws of reality do not apply.Touching upon themes of displacement and changing realities, the curators will present the work of 10 artists: Chang Yuchen, Lang Zhang, Miranda Fengyuan Zhang, Tan Tian, Tiger Chengliang Cai, Tingying Ma (in collaboration with Tina Wang and Kang Kang), Wang Tuo, Yi Xin Tong, Wei Xiaoguang, and Weigang Song.

Compared to the practices of Chinese artists represented in much of the current Western art scene, these artists, educated in the United States, create works that defy the ‘exoticization’ of their Chinese-ness. Their use of diverse art mediums, including painting, video, film, installation, performance, dance, drawing, and sculpture are fused with personal, idiosyncratic, theoretical, formal, satirical, poetic and ineffable contents.

“As the title implies, ROADSIDE PICNIC is the food meant to be eaten on an excursion by the side of a road. Where does this road lead to within the New York art world, to a maturity of style and content back in China, or toward becoming the leading voices of contemporary discourse? ROADSIDE PICNIC is a celebration of the state in flux as our global world rattles anxiously and attentively”. – Hiroshi Sunairi, Stalkert and Yixin (Sam) Gong, Bubble B.
