Sara Jordenö's 16 mm film installation The Pool explores
the ways in which desire effects the perception of events and
how personal memory brushes up against political conditions and
ideas. Constantly referring back to its own medium, the work lends
its methods from experimental documentary and surrealist cinema.
Erlea Maneros appropriates images from mass media
reinterpreting their documentary aesthetic. She uses painting
to address the relationship between beauty and violence pointing
to the ways we consume these events as palatable experiences.

JONES SÁNCHEZ The Southland Sketches Redux
CLASS: C, the mobile van gallery, in collaboration
with FREEWAVES, is pleased to announceThe Southland Sketches
Redux by Jones Sánchez.
Conceived and designed specifically
for CLASS: C, The Southland Sketches Redux is a multi-channel
audio and video installation combining miniature video screens
and high-powered car audio components. The deceptively simple
video montage and jarring surround audio sourced and mixed from
infamous Hollywood car chases present a synchronized juxtaposition
of suburban materiality, car culture, and Hollywood exploitation.
The work encourages audiences to question their conventional understanding
of Southern California's social stratification.
The January 2004 tour of The Southland Sketches Redux is
produced in conjunction with FREEWAVES
for the TV pilot program Público, directed by Juan Devis.
CLASS: C is a mobile gallery/event that is intended to expose
the featured artists' works to a wide cross section of viewers
at multiple venues across Southern California. Borrowing liberally
from modern art, California's car culture, and street vending
experience, Ruben Ochoa's customized delivery van seeks to blur
the lines between the high and low as well as the private and
public sphere within his roving "white cube".
