ABOUT “Kuo’s Eyes”: Young Kuo is found unconscious in the woods with his eyes torn out. Using his stuffed bear companion Bainfu as a guide, he goes in search of the person responsible for this heinous act. It is equal parts traumatic, mysterious, magical, compelling – and overwhelmingly beautiful. The earlier part of the evening features a selection of O. B. De Alessi’s video works.
