Jesse Malmed: Untitled (Just Kidding)
Jesse Malmed In Person

Swinging through town on a west coast tour, Chicago’s own lingua-contrarian enunciationist Jesse Malmed unspools Untitled (Just Kidding), an ever-evolving suite of films and performative interjections made over the last half decade.

Jesse Malmed: “The works play in creative reading, studied density, the one-(hundred)-liner, choirs, screen texts, the bootleg, the cover, jokes, speculative etymologies, accents, loops, the cinemagical, body swaps, poetry, citation and human voice. Conceptually engaged, language-intensive and visually mesmerizing, the suite scrambles somewhere in the intersects of conceptual comedy, dizzying illogics, the poetic plu-future and sustainable sourcing. Through deliberate mistranslation and strategic denaturing of languages and codes, [Malmed] revels in and reveal[s] their extra-communicative potential as sound, as image, as object, and shift audiences’ concepts of the show, of the cinema.” (Untitled (Just Kidding))
