>Video Viewpoints:  Torsten Zenas Burns and Katarzyna Kozyra
>The Museum of Modern Art, New York
>February 25, 6pm
>Katarzyna Kozyra (Warsaw) and Torsten Zenas Burns (New York)  explore the
>limits of physicality in their new work incorporating video and performance.
>Polish artist Katarzyna Kozyra integrates elements of painting, theater and
>video performance, capturing an unnerving, yet subtly humorous portrait of
>the social and political conditions of the body. Rite of Spring (1999-2001)
>inspired by Stravinsky's revolutionary 1914 ballet and Nijinski's scandalous
>choreography, casts elderly dancers in exuberant motions enhanced and
>distorted by stop-action editing processes.
>New York artist Torsten Zenas Burns discusses his fusion of improvisational
>video fictions, sculptural installations and live performance body
>interactions in Selected Lifespace and Galatica (2002).  Improvised and
>videotaped,  the work explores the speculative and imaginary landscape of
>architecture, mental geography, and choreographic manifestations that
>reflect on our contemporary moment.
>Video Viewpoints provides a forum for artists to show and talk about their
>latest projects.  By creating a space for discussion of recent works, the
>Museum provides a perspective on the evolving forms of video and media art.
