Chicago-based artists Molly Hewitt and Kaycee Conaway employ video and performance to re-create and re-enact their own worlds of gender bending alter-egos; characters that exist in a low-budget, green-screened imitation of a landscape that’s been recorded, buried, dug up again. Or maybe it came through a motel TV on a single digit channel at 2 AM. This program features two new shorts made by Conaway and Hewitt, as well as a survey of their work over the last two years. (2012-2015, approx. 60 min., video)
