FRESH FACES IN ART: EIGHT LA ARTISTS YOU SHOULD KNOW
McLEAN FAHNESTOCK Singular events activate research-launch-pads for McLean Fahnestock’s heuristic expeditions transposing perpetuated myths into reconfigurated narratives questioning perceptual authenticity. Found footage, field recordings and collected institutional resources are systematically appropriated into contextual drifts sculpting the focal point of the exploration. Fahnestock’s editing prowesses capture microvisual indexes, accentuating gist knowledge and blinked oversights. Cued in sound bytes of presidential debates, meticulously organized with synchronized composites of all space shuttle lift-offs, her current pièce de résistance taps into the Fahnestock history of explorers, grandfather and great uncle, in their own right, as purveyors of collected artifacts and data of the South Pacific.
