Zefrey Throwell's CV and other information on his amazing projects can be found at www.zefrey.com [email protected] Zefrey Throwell is a troublemaker who uses the mediums of film, performance, photography and painting to orchestrate his inquisitive perspective. With a background in philosophy and fine arts his pieces question the status quo and pick at the underpinnings of our modern era. Throwell?s paintings are the culmination of his crosspollinating practice and incorporate silkscreened images from his films and performances on bold fabrics that he hand sews. Throwell?s method is one of deep investigation; it often starts with a short film or a performance piece, which investigates a tangible social issue such as economic disparity, drug abuse, reclamation of public space, etc. Often the performances involve massive groups of people, such as the largest and loudest symphony in historythe 1,000 car horn orchestration entitled ?Entropy Symphony III? with LAND in Los Angeles and a weeklong strip poker critique of modern economics called ?I?ll Raise You One...? for Performa 11 at Art in General. Nine of Throwell?s films, including ?Ocularpation: Wall Street?, have been screened at the Museum of Modern Art for a special night honoring Throwell?s work curated by Rajendra Roy, chief curator of film at MoMA. Throwell's first major museum presentation at the Leopold Hoesch Museum in Dueren, Germany 2012 included the film ?Time Stau? which later premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and is now being turned into a full length feature film. Throwell?s new artist book ?Folding Space/Pressing Time? is a collaboration with artist Dan Gluibizzi and can be acquired through the artist?s web page www.zefrey.com. Throwell?s projects have been featured in The New York Times, CNN, NPR, NBC, Artforum, Art in America Artinfo and Modern Painters. Throwell has work in The Museum of Modern Art, NY collection and other major collections around the world.
