People get ready! Steven Cerio is making the trek to the west coast next week to present his film The Magnificent Pigtail Shadow in person in Los Angeles and San Francisco, and also to do an extended signing at Mission: Comics & Art.
On Monday, November fifth and Wednesday, November seventh, Steven will be appearing at the Downtown Independent in L.A. and The Roxie in S.F., respectively, to host a night of his films. Along with the main feature – the Magnificent Pigtail Shadow, there will also be a couple of shorts, a Q + A with the artist and opportunity to get books, prints, toys and other Cerio goodness signed.
Steven Cerio’s unmistakable style set the stage for the neo-psychedelic revival. His work has appeared in countless television shows, magazines, posters, and comic books; and, has been shown in galleries worldwide. His previous film work for performance pioneers The Residents is in the permanent collection of The Museum of Modern Art in New York. The Magnificent Pigtail Shadow is his first solo film.
“The Pigtail Shadow is a false idol, a false prophet promising a jeweled path out of reality. Teeming with music, words and imagery, this film induces a meditative and blissful state. The sweet and nimble reading by Kristin Hersh places an ethereal tone over a lush and swirling soundtrack. Cerio gently dismantles the collective subconscious and thoroughly mocks the human drama. Moments shift between the candied ecstasy of childhood and a teasing cynicism. Spotlights shine on our shifting superstitions in this cautionary tale.”
