Opening This Week:
SF Camerawork presents V+M, a multi-channel video and sound installation by renowned video artist John Sanborn with music composed by Theresa Wong. Organized by Joseph De Mario, V+M is the first San Francisco exhibition of the artist’s work in 25 years. V+M will be on view at SF Camerawork from November 13 through December 3, 2015.
V+M retells the myth of Venus and Mars. Their story has fascinated poets and philosophers as a mythic example of the balance between opposing energies — beauty and brutality, order and magic, grace and strength. V+M goes beyond the heteronormative code in order to get to the source material for the balance of power in relationships, the nature of myth making, and the origins of desire.
