Production Description

The Columbus Museum of Art has commissioned artist Geof Oppenheimer to produce a new video project that will be filmed in and around Dublin, Ohio.

Synopsis: The video is comprised of two interrelated sections; one filmed in the backseat and above a Lincoln Town Car using an unmanned aerial vehicle, the other in a local restaurant. The latter scene plays off of Samuel Beckett’s short play Ohio Impromptu, which was written in 1980-81 for a symposium in Columbus. The project as a whole takes up questions of negotiation and exchange, asking questions about the spaces, both physical and psychological, of labor in the contemporary world. In Oppenheimer’s work, humanistic and social concerns intersect with material and the economic realities.
