April 16th - Video Screening with Q&A in Baltimore
SHOWstudio writes: To celebrate Easter with an appropriate quantity of eggs, SHOWstudio launches ‘The Tale of the Bravest Warrior’, an exclusive new film by acclaimed young filmmaker Erica Schreiner. The work builds on Schreiner’s existing explorations of the processes of making and destroying and tells a tale of courage in the face of seemingly impossible odds.
The Way Things Used to Be: The Diary of a High School Artist - is a girl’s very personal story, written in a first person, diary format, accounting in detail her Senior year of high school. Dysfunctional and very aware of it, she contemplates her future and purpose in life. She examines her parents, friendships and relationships through an adolescent veil of depression with distant hopefulness.

From SHOWstudio: Following on from her poignant Fashion Fetish contribution, Metamorphosis, video and performance artist,Erica Schreiner provides her latest film, Debris. Schreiner originally trained as a graphic designer but has been self-publishing and working as an artist since 2006 by creating videos with her 1984 Sharp analog VHS. The camera is central to her unique aesthetic, which is built around the subtle way in which it captures light and movement. Her newest work, Debris, features Schreiner’s characteristic attributes of ‘make and destroy’ and abstract symbolism. The role of sound in the film is also worth noting, where silence and sound collide in an auditory assault that encourages a sense of vulnerability from the viewer.Dip into this film for an immersive and intense visual experience.
Sunday, December 9th at L’asso East Village, NYC, screening some new work, accompanying pre-birthday celebration.
