Dani Leventhal Videoworks: Volume 1

The work of Dani Leventhal explores the complicated space that exists between decay and renewal, intimacy and disconnection and the sacred and mundane. The six pieces that comprise Dani Leventhal Videoworks: Volume 1 each examine these ambiguous emotional and psychic spaces through a use of montage that is at once both unstructured and dispassionate and lyrically sentimental. Each piece establishes structural comparisons between things that are thought to have intrinsic meaning and things that don’t, and through this juxtaposition, both the personal and the mundane, the intimate and the abject, the immanent and the ephemeral, achieve a synthesis through which the commonplace becomes transcendental.
