come lontano (As if Far Away)

Doug Ischar, 2010

Apr 1, 2011–Apr 30, 2011

Medea, the 1969 film that brought together director Pier Paolo Pasolini and the legendary soprano Maria Callas in her first and only film appearance, is the backdrop for this new experimental video by Chicago-based artist Doug Ischar.

Details surrounding the production of the film are revealed alongside the story of the extraordinary relationship that developed between the two artists, including Callas’s reaction to the violent death of Pasolini in 1975. (22 mins., video)

Since the early 1990s, Ischar has worked in sound, video, and photography. His work has evolved from large-scale multimedia installations to single-channel videos that address issues surrounding gay identity, desire, and loss. Currently an associate professor of photography at the University of Illinois, Chicago, he has exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Ottawa; Photographers Gallery, London; L.A.C.E., Los Angeles; and Museu de Arte Moderna, São Paulo.
