Tobias Putrih and MOS have designed and constructed a cinematic environment (titled Majestic) made of aluminum and steel that serves as a programmatic vessel for a video series conceived by Wexner Center film and video curators. Visitors can walk into and around the cinema, absorbing it as a sculpture, and can also sit within the structure to enjoy the programming. The video program changes every few weeks and features, in order: Jun Nguyen-Hatshushiba’s HappyNew Year: Memorial Project Vietnam II (November 9–27); Abbas Kiarostrami’s Shirin (November 29–December 26); Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreig’s Je Veux Voir (December 28–January 23); and seven episodes from Leslie Thornton’s Peggy and Fred in Hell (January 24-February 13).
Born in Slovenia, Putrih lives and works in Boston. MOS is a design and architecture collective that often collaborates with Putrih; led by principals Michael Meredith and Hilary Sample, MOS is based in New Haven, Connecticut.
Majestic is part of the ‘Six Solos’ exhibition at the Wexner Center (www.wexarts.org), featuring six independent exhibitions of the work of six rising international artists from November 9, 2010 to February 13, 2011. The artists are Erwin Redl, Megan Geckler, Tobias Putrih/MOS, Gustavo Godoy, Katy Moran, and Joel Morrison. The work of each artist occupies its own space. Organized by the Wexner Center, Six Solos opened in conjunction with the center’s 21st anniversary celebrations.
