Desire Lines
Video | hdv | color | 15'43'' | USA / | 2018
Over the course of eighteen months, artist Tommy Malekoff travelled extensively throughout the United States, filming arranged events as well as natural patterns occurring in one of America's most ubiquitous and banal open spaces – the parking lot. His video, titled Desire Lines, is a fifteen minute loop with orchestrated sound that cycles through moments of strange spectacle. These flat, concrete grids behave as stages for all types of activation and rituals, positing a location for expression and a future of meaning.
Tommy Malekoff, born 1992 in South Boston, Virginia, lives and works in New York, NY. His film Desire Lines was exhibited this January at Morán Morán Gallery in Los Angeles.
