Jeremy Bessoff

Artist-In-Residence in Video/Film

Jeremy Bessoff breathes life into his images and sculptures with the magic of motion-picture technology. He is interested in documenting the secret communication that goes on between inanimate objects. Certain objects, whether found or created, can be imbibed with or already exude a certain esoteric memory. It is this ready-made history that Jeremy finds so intriguing. At times he has been considered a surrealist. Bessoff says that, “Surreality is the refuge of the emotionally inarticulate” but is currently keeping his options open. He is currently exploring the roots of modern masculinity through the Western genre by way of a plastic Cowboys and Indians play set.
