Italian-born, New York-based artist Marco Brambilla (b. 1960) creates complex video works that recontextualize and collage found popular imagery. SITE is pleased to premier Brambilla’s recently-completed series entitled Megaplex, a tour-de-force trilogy of 3D video collages. Each piece in Brambilla’s stunning series, including Civilization (Megaplex) (2008), Evolution (Megaplex) (2010), and Creation (Megaplex) (2012), is a spectacle of hundreds of clips from a vast archive of iconic films. In each video, Brambilla takes the viewer on a spiraling, mesmerizing journey of computer-altered found footage sampled from both mainstream and obscure films. Each part of Brambilla’s Megaplex series will be screened on different days. Visit our website for a full Megaplex screening schedule.
