Ligorano and Reese In Memory of Truth, 2003 Micro Video Projection


The artist team Ligorano and Reese combine old and new technology in their project In Memory of Truth, a film compiled from old movies and projected onto an actual pinhead. They designed a micro-projection system that projects film images on the head of the pin. Viewers need to bend down to peer at the video through a magnifier. Taking clips from recent Hollywood war films, they edited a montage of fictional scenes from Pearl Harbor, WWII in Europe, Vietnam, Somalia, among others. They were treated black and white, to have the appearance of documen- tary footage, blurring the divide between fiction and reality; questioning beliefs and truth.


Bio Ligorano/Reese is the collaboration of artists Nora Ligorano and Marshall Reese. Starting in the early 1980s, Ligorano/Reese‘s work is an ongoing investigation into the impact of technology on culture and the associations and meanings that the media brings to imag- es, languages, and speech in politics. Their body of work is multidisciplinary, including limited edition multiples, videos, sculptures and installations which involve a range of unusual materials and industrial processes. Ligorano/Reese have shown widely through- out their career, and are included in the public collections of many institutions, not limited to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco; The New York Public Library, New York; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. They have also been awarded multiple grants including the

National Endowment for the Arts in 1986 and 1989, and have received artist residencies at Stichting Steim in Holland in 2000 and the Eyebeam Center for Art & Technology in New York in 2009, among others. This year Ligo- rano/Reese will participate in a discussion about political advertisements at the New School for Social Research in New York. Ligo- rano/Reese live and work in Brooklyn, New York and have been affiliated with Catharine Clark Gallery since 2010.
