Jason Simon, In and Around the Ohio Pen, solo exhibition at Sismógrafo, Porto, Portugal, May 29 - June 26, 2015

The exhibition "In and Around the Ohio Pen" by Jason Simon, consists of one video, from Super-8 film, and four photos assembled specifically for the occasion. The video is centered on curator Bill Horrigan and filmmaker Chris Marker: in the space of Sismógrafo, a visit to a disused prison suggests a reflection on the passage of time, with Marker’s piano providing an improvisational soundtrack. The photos depart from the video and lead back to it via cinema, radio and long distance collaborations.
