Artist Wes Kline has recreated the unproduced film “Minotaur” by the mid-century avant garde filmmaker Hans Richter, by using Project 924 as a collage space for re-imagining the film as a series of performative vignettes and architectural photographic archives strewn around the gallery. Kline produced a series of structures, video vignettes, photographs, archives, drawings, and performances that collapse the modernist figure of the “Minotaur” (a favorite of the Surrealists, Picasso, and many others) into a series of participatory moments. Instead of the fragmented figure of the Minotaur in a labyrinth, the viewer encounters an opportunity to “repair,” “archive,” or “restructure” the Minotaur as a site of exchange and production. The title MINOTAUROCRACY humorously alludes to this ‘production,’ recalling the image of the Minotaur as not a fragment, but as a plurality.
