'Shadow Fux', the first collaborative work of New York based artist Rita Ackermann and Nashville based director Harmony Korine consists of large-scale paintings on vinyl and canvas, several drawings as well as one film, creating a grand presentation with dissonant overtones. Central to the practice of both is the creation of psychologically jarring figures, whose presence is further enhanced by fragmented narratives. Produced in a call and response method, the collaboration illustrates the importance of cutting to both artists’ works. Editing and splicing, Ackermann and Korine insert absurdist moments into narrative tropes, subverting plot lines and ultimately defying our expectations towards story telling.
