CinemaSpace is presenting Lewis Klahr: Hieroglyphs of Lost Time with Lewis Klahr himself present, on Wednesday, May 18th and Thursday, May 19th at 7:00pm in the Segal Centre CinemaSpace here in Montreal.

The Acclaimed collage artist will be making his first appearance in Montreal with two programs featuring many of his most celebrated cut-out animations in 16mm and video, including the complete epic series Engram Sepals (Melodramas 1994-2000) and stunningly beautiful Daylight Moon. This two-day event offers a rare opportunity to survey Klahr’s prolific career as a filmmaker whose poetic sensibility parallels that of artists such as Joseph Cornell, Bruce Conner and Robert Rauschenberg.

Called “the reigning proponent of cut and paste” by J. Hoberman of the Village Voice, master collagist Lewis Klahr has been making films since 1977. He is known for his uniquely idiosyncratic experimental films and cut-out animations which have screened extensively in the United States and Europe – in venues such as NewYork’s Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Biennial, the New York Film Festival, the Toronto International Film Festival, the London Film Festival and Los Angeles Filmforum. In May of 2010 The Wexner Center for the Arts presented a five-program retrospective of Klahr’s films. His film Wednesday Morning Two A.M. was awarded a Tiger Award for Best Short Film at the 2010 International Film Festival at Rotterdam. In Film Comment magazine’s recent poll of the top 50 experimental filmmakers from 2000 to 2010, Klahr was ranked fourth. His work is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
