The film Plan for a Spell (2001) comprises randomly shuffled footage of peculiarly English rites and banalities: the pyres of burning cattle during the foot-and-mouth crisis, footage from British rural horror classic The Wicker Man (1973), a demolition derby, the ceremonial parading of a Burry Man – an ancient Pagan ceremony that is held every year near Edinburgh. It is slowly realized that these segments are being variously scrambled with uncertainly phrased subtitles, each of which wonders how structure can be discerned: ‘I can see there must be something special about this too. Is it good enough just to look for a pattern? For the spell to work it might be better to forget about it.’ The process of planning for a spell makes unusual provision for a special kind of knowledge, which it is assumed can’t be talked about in terms of logistics; Chodzko enchants these decidedly weird routines by doing no more than asking how they might best be understood.

Uri Aran: Doctor, Dog, Sandwich

Whitney Museum of American Art: Uri Aran

"I see a delay of meaning. I see things as mediated—almost everything is quoted. The artist’s work often hinges on such invented taxonomies, suggesting the pathos of organizing knowledge into legible systems."




The Donut Gang by Uri Aran is part rehearsal and part performance; the video seems deliberately stuck in its own trajectory towards becoming a video, without ever quite getting there. a sense of instinct and intimacy dominates, as if the presence of the camera was not strong enough to break the spell. uri uses characters, motifs, phrases and sounds from his own previous works, and plays with the way in which endless repetition can strip the banal of its meaning, pushing it over into the absurd.

當下所發生的每件事情,在對等的多重宇宙(Mutiple Universes)中也同時進行,當我們開始質疑、重新思考關於時間與意識的問題時,也同時影響另外一邊對等的我們的意識。當生命走到盡頭,即身體機能盡失時,蘭薩認為,還會在另一個世界重新開始。
In fact, consciousness exists outside of constraints of time and space
