Luis Gispert at Mary Boone Gallery


The 50′ projection exhibition employs the power of 18,000 lumens from a Christie HD-18k projector, Denon surround pre-amps, QSC 8 channel amplification and is looped on a Sony Blu-Ray player as designed and installed by K2imaging.

‘Smother’ is bathed in the atmosphere of 1980’s Miami. It explores violent and sometimes twisted childhood nightmares through memories, drifting between real and hyper-real, as it follows an 11-year-old boy undergoing a series of painful physical transformations that ultimately lead him to break the adolescent bonds that bind him to his overbearing mother. Gispert wrote the script for the film with artist Orly Genger and collaborated on the soundtrack with the Miami-based interdisciplinary bass experimentalist Phoenecia (Joshua Kay & Romulo Del Castillo). – from¬†Saatchi Online
