Gretchen Skogerson, 2006
As part of the Wexner Center’s 25th anniversary, The Box is dedicating the entire year of programming to work produced in the Film/Video Studio. Screenings in this free exhibition space for video, located just across from the Wexner Center Store, run continuously seven days a week, the same hours as our ticket office (Mon–Wed: 9 AM–6 PM; Thu–Fri: 9 AM–8 PM; Sat: 10 AM–8 PM; Sun: 11 AM–6 PM).
“A landscape of incomplete signs,” is how Gretchen Skogerson describes DRIVE THRU, her high-definition video filmed in Miami in the wake of Hurricane Ivan.
The video focuses on the florescent bulbs in commercial signage, now exposed by the hurricane’s destruction, as they continue to try to illuminate or communicate. DRIVE THRU was included in the 2008 Whitney Biennial and premiered at the New York Film Festival. (20 mins., high-definition video)
