CoWorker Projects is pleased to present second video screening by Melissa Skluzacek, including two new videos Drive By Horizon MN and Transcontinental Horizon. The Horizon videos expand upon an evolving body of Skluzacek’s work, which she describes as “invested in visualizing infinity and the dissolution of space through the passage of time.”

The video program also includes a selection of video works made over the past 7 years, exploring Skluzacek’s use of temporary sculptural installations as mediated constructed environments. Melissa Skluzacek received her MFA/MA from SUNY Purchase College in 2007 and lives and works in New York City. She has exhibited her work at Issue Project Room Brooklyn NY; Nueberger Museum Purchase NY; Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art Peekskill, NY; Bushwick Film Festival Microscope Gallery Brooklyn NY; Co-Worker’s Project Entwine NYC; Beta Spaces Brooklyn NYC. Melissa Skluzacek is a recipient of a Jerome Foundation Grant and an Arts Exchange Fellowship from the Westchester Arts Council. Skluzacek’s work has been written about in the New York Times and the Minneapolis Star Tribune. She has performed and recorded nationally and internationally as a musician with the bands Elada, Tenderwheel & Party of One.
