This video, made collaboratively by Seattle artists Jeffry Mitchell and Tivon Rice, is a recent acquisition to the Henry’s collection. Panda combines Mitchell’s material sensibilities with Rice’s work in experimental video into a mesmerizing progression of suggestive forms and motions. The straightforward action of dripping shaving-cream onto a lit transparent surface results in a strange evolution of creatures and environments. Each dollop and plop is mirrored to evoke Rorschach inkblot tests, causing the viewer to draw his or her own subjective conclusions about the images.

Organized by Henry Associate Curator Sara Krajewski.
Featured artists: Jeffry Mitchell, Tivon Rice
