LUTHER PRICE

Luther Price received a B.F.A. in Sculpture and Media and Performing Arts from Massachusetts College of Art. Price is largely known as an experimental filmmaker working in Super 8, and he also works in sculpture, photography and performance where he works in disreputable formats, “appearing in various guises from stylized, frozen-faced drag queen, to naked performance artist, to clown. Price??ôs film work has an oppressive intensity, envisioning an alienated world of often mindlessly repeated rituals and poses that entrap and suffocate his subjects. Price??ôs subject emerges as the breaches, breakdowns, and collapse of body, family, and society, in the face of unstoppable philosophical forces” (Gary Morris, Bright Lights Film Journal).

Price??ôs filmography includes Sodom (1989), Clown (1991), Meat (1992), Eruption Erection (1994), Run (1994), Me Gut No Dog Dog (1995), Mother (1998-99), and Home (1999). Price has had solo exhibitions of his work at Thread Waxing Space, New York (1999) and at the San Francisco Cinematheque (2000). He recently screened new films as part of Momenta Art??ôs exhibition Still Ill (2005).
