Metate: 5  min

Meta-tate premiered at The Happening 2.  A pop-up gallery show at Gristle in Bushwick Brooklyn in August 2014.    Meta-tate is a video installation shown on a framed monitor 5' off the ground on a wall.  Passerbys at the gallery will see this clip played in a loop on a 32' framed monitor.  There is no audio.

Meta-tate is a commentary on the gallery experience.  It is a satirical piece that is supposed to engage the viewer in a thoughtful inner dialogue about what they are currently experiencing while at the show.   Michael LaVoie, the artist is a filmmaker and cinematographer.  Metatate is his first "video art" installation meant for gallery experience.
