Join Tribeca New Music for the New York premiere of Wunderkammern: The Secret Life of Objects, an extraordinary work by film maker Erika Suderburg with music by Eleonor Sandresky.
The film well be presented for the first time with live music at the Dimenna Center in NYC.
Wunderkammern: The Secret Life of Objects examines acquisition, objects and what a contemporary Wunderkammern might reveal about desire, knowledge, materiality and memory. Fabricated out of objects contained in an existent fifty-year-old Cabinet of Wonders, Wunderkammern: The Secret Life of Objects leaves no object untouched, no dust mite comfortable and no item microscopically unexamined. Organized alphabetically for sanity’s sake the film activates a series of associations, arcane, eccentric, playful and expansive. Ever unfolding, yet carefully constructed to facilitate your perusal, Wunderkammern: The Secret Life of Objects takes you on tangents yet to be imagined, springs coils tightly wound, unnerves the inanimate and vitalizes cultural detritus. You will look at the objects that surround you with a newfound appreciation, animist suspicion, perspectival acumen and a regained sense of wonder. We invite you to get lost with us.
