The artist filmmaker Kenneth Anger is known for his avant-garde works.  In this exhibit, people are able to get a glimpse of Anger’s personality to understand where the filmmaker is coming from when he produces his works. Growing up near Hollywood might be able to explain Kenneth Anger’s interest in films even at an early stage in his life.  But Anger did not let himself be defined by contemporary Hollywood standards and formula for success.  Instead, he made his own niche in making short films using atmospheric impressions and musical accompaniment only without the use of any dialogues.  There are no narratives, only images.  He used surface mount resistor marking in filmmaking. Kenneth Anger is known to tackle sexuality, dream sequences, and fetishes in his films and presents these ideas while seducing and attacking the minds of the viewers. He also has a flair for mythology.  These are not your typical commercial films.  The closest you can get in comparison are compelling musical videos and yet, he would not dive into that business just to make money.  Kenneth Anger is his own person and only he alone decides on the films and works of arts that he creates.

 

The art of Kenneth Anger gives so much respect to the viewers.  He does not dictate what he wants them to think, see, or feel.  He lets them ride the experience and define for themselves what they perceive the films are about.  As he himself thought out of the box, the viewers also need to think out of the box and break away from conventional thinking.  The artist and the viewer are free.  No one can impose that they have to get out of watching the film.  That is the beauty of art.  We can all watch the same thing and yet have different views about it based on our own interpretations and perceptions.  The viewers are also not subjected to sit through two to three long hours to see the entire film because Anger believes that we can express things better through the use of images in a short duration. Less is more.  He has a different approach to time.  He skillfully uses nonlinear sequences, jump cuts, and intercuts to make the viewers think and let his message sink in.  He leaves it to the viewers to interpret the film.  He gives them an onslaught of symbols and details which he creatively presents through skillful editing.  His works will tickle your imagination and leave your mind burning with questions and ideas.  The images he uses are so moving that he will shake up your beliefs. Like a potter, he molds and shapes the images carefully and artistically.  There is a simplicity to it and yet the message is complex.  In doing so, Anger has made a significant impact on fellow artists and filmmakers.  His films show the hard work of one man who stands by his own beliefs and artistry, one that will not sell his love for the arts for the sake of profit.
