Acerca del evento

Join Compound Yellow for a music and video screening Saturday April 22nd 6pm-7pm. 

Under his own name and as These Wonderful Evils, Zak Boerger has performed and released albums of slow burn, guitar-based music that sits somewhere between the ambient soundscapes of Brian Eno and Robert Fripp and the heavier approaches of guitar minimalists such as Heldon and Earth. 

With his spouse and creative partner Melissa Oresky, Boerger released a CD/DVD set including Oresky’s video work, the product of a residency at the Petrified Forest National Park. Videos from this series and others will be screened during the performance.

Through her collage and painting based multidisciplinary practice, Melissa Oresky seeks to recognize plants, in all their mystery and ubiquity, as perceptive and expressive beings. Her work has been exhibited at a wide range of venues in Chicago and beyond, with recent exhibitions and curatorial projects at Boundary, Chicago; The Elmhurst Art Museum, Elmhurst, IL; Field Projects, NYC; and The Franklin, Chicago. She has published several artist’s books and prints with Kayrock Screenprinting, Brooklyn, and co-authored a 2020 essay exploring her recent artist’s book, Finder, with historian Keith Pluymers that was published in Antennae: The Journal of Nature and Visual Culture.

Oresky is currently a 2023 Wallis-Annenberg Helix Program fellow and Professor of Painting at Illinois State University.
