For their new video “Wormholes,” Downey used eight early videos as raw material— all of which picture the artist performing alone with materials in mostly empty spaces. In this new work, versions of the artist are fractured and collaged, connecting across time and space. “Wormholes” presents queer embodiment as visceral and entropic, where breakdown is also breakthrough.
TEMPORARY FILES (a.k.a. Temp. Files) is an experimental, cooperative, video art-making platform. We are a rotating group of artists making work between text, performance, and video. Videos are released on the first Monday of each month. After one month, each video disappears.
