Artist's Salon Featuring Interdisciplinary Artist, Terry Berlier
589 Capistrano Way, Stanford
Terry Berlier is an interdisciplinary artist who works primarily with sculpture, installation, and video. Her work is often kinetic, interactive and/or sound based and often focuses around everyday objects, the environment, ideas of nonplace/place and queer practice. Berlier will be showing her forthcoming experimental documentary video, Remain Human: The Slatter’s Court Project (2003-10). Remain Human is a forty minute video that focuses on the lives and stories of approximately six residents of Slatter’s Court, a trailer park and outdated auto camp that has been designated “blight” by the liberal town of Davis, California. After living there for three years during graduate school Berlier became fascinated with the contradictions of this community and privy to the stories of its tenants. Q&A with Berlier to follow the video presentation.
