Kelly Sears is an experimental animator that cuts up and collages imagery from American culture and politics to intervene with the history embedded in the frame. Archive Fever Dream features a selection of short animated works created from appropriated images ranging from thrift store cast-offs to archival material that shift between the official and the uncanny. Simultaneously playful and dark, the works explore contemporary narratives of power, such as manifest destiny, occupation and surveillance through frenetic and droning compositions.
