untitled (trailer)- Jim Hodges, Encke King, and Carlos Marques da Cruz
Beginning with a reflection on the early AIDS epidemic, Untitled eschews a linear narrative to introduce a fractious timeline, moving from the sublime to the tragic and back again. By juxtaposing mainstream network news, activist footage, artists’ works, and popular entertainment from the last turbulent decades, Untitled references regimes of power that precipitated a generation of AIDS and queer activism and continues today with international struggles for freedom and expression.
Jim Hodges has created a broad range of work exploring themes of fragility, temporality, love, and death in a highly original and poetic vocabulary. His works frequently deploy different materials and techniques: from ready‐made objects to traditional media, such as graphite and ink. He currently lives and works in New York City. Carlos Marques da Cruz works with artists, performers, and filmmakers world-wide. Encke King is a film and video producer, editor, and writer based in New York.
