Artist and filmmaker, Jordan Baseman, was born in Philadelphia, USA in 1960. His work derives from a combination of recorded interviews and observational processes, as well as archival source material which has been drawn upon in order to produce narrative-based, creative non-fiction. His work often takes the form of single-screen films, sound-works and moving-image based installation artworks. The spontaneity and observational aspects of his practice are key, resulting in a synthesis of reportage, portraiture, documentary, creative non-fiction and narrative.
Baseman’s recent exhibition of haunting memorial images, held at Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool in spring of 2016: Flat Death: Edgar Martins & Jordan Baseman, presented a series of images from a long tradition of photography being used by families in order to memorialise their deceased loved ones. The work invited us to reflect on how we deal with death, both personally and as a society.
The title of Slowdown Interior (Omaha) refers to a rock club encountered by Baseman ‘in the middle of nowhere’ in Omaha Nebraska, USA. The neon in the image features a skewed view of a ubiquitous beer advertising slogan.
Baseman’s collaborative style of working has led to projects with many public intitutions, including The Science Museum, London; Dundee Contemporary Arts, Scotland; Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, Omaha, Nebraska; Camden Arts Centre, London; Collective Gallery, Edinburgh; Book Works, London; National Sculpture Factory, Ireland; The Wellcome Trust, London; University of Tasmania, Australia; Tokyo Wonder Site, Tokyo; The Photographers’ Gallery, London and Matt’s Gallery, London.
Baseman’s films have featured in international exhibitions and film festivals such as the 53rd Venice Biennale, Venice and Los Angeles Animation Festival, USA where he was awarded Best Film in the Experimental Film category; San Francisco Short Film Festival USA, and Melbourne Underground Film Festival, Australia, where he won the Best International Short Film Award. He also won plaudits at Oaxaca International Film Festival and Lone Star International Film Festival where Baseman was awarded Best Short Film, and was also awarded Best Experimental Film at Fargo International Film Festival.
Jordan Baseman is head of the Sculpture Programme and Reader in time-based media at the Royal College of Art in London where he lives and works. He is represented by Matt’s Gallery, London.
