Press Release

Artist C.T. Jasper’s “ERASED” is the latest film to be part of Art Production Fund’s 24/7 Projection series shown in the Lobby of The Standard, Hollywood, and in-room in both The Standard, Hollywood and The Standard, Downtown LA.

For “ERASED”, C.T. Jasper took two cinematic masterpieces, David Lynch’s Blue Velvet and Volker Schloedorff’s Tin Drum, removed all the characters, and left everything else untouched. The plot and narratives continue on through the presence of lamps, utensils, furniture, doors that open and close, occasional animals, sounds, wind, and light. The end result is an art piece that re-contextualizes the films and their various elements while expanding upon the artist’s explorations of the narrative potential of architecture and material culture in general.

C.T. Jasper’s installation will be on display as part of Art Production Fund’s 24/7 Projection series shown in the Lobby of The Standard, Hollywood and in-room at both The Standards, Hollywood and Downtown through the end of the year.

C.T. Jasper lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. C.T. Jasper’s work has been exhibited widely in the United States and Europe in such venues as the Sculpture Center, Bronx Museum, and The Drawing Center in New York, Centre for Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle and Zacheta National Art Gallery in Warsaw, Poland; Fondazione Querini Stampalia in Venice, Italy; National Gallery in Prague, and De Paul Art Museum (Chicago, IL) among other places. C.T. Jasper is a recipient of numerous grants and awards including John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship. He was an artist-in-residence in such programs and places as the American Academy in Rome, Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin, International Studio and Curatorial Program in the New York City, and Artpace in San Antonio, TX. He currently teaches at the Department of Sculpture at the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia.
