Trailer presents an alternative reading of footage from the artist’s science-fiction feature film: Piercing Brightness as a 15-minute, experimental 'trailer'. Designed specifically as one of three parallel films drawn from the same material, Trailer was conceived for gallery installation and short film platforms, as an interrogation of the syntax between gallery and cinema, and equally between short and long duration.
