Matrix 198: T.J. Wilcox

JUNE 16 - JULY 28, 2002

T.J. Wilcox creates labor-intensive films, pieced together frame by frame from vintage and new film clips and animation. He copies the film onto video, then transfers it back again onto 16mm to obtain a grainy, deliberately low-tech final version. Wilcox is attracted to stories, particularly of historical figures whose stories have been passed down for centuries, losing some veracity and gaining texture with each retelling. Wilcox will create two new films for his MATRIX show, which will be his first solo museum exhibition in the United States.
