PSA Projects Presents: Carolyn Faber’s “Take Your Time”

11/03/2013 | Exterior Screening | Multiple Sites | Chicago   

PSA Projects continues its (idiosyncratic, desultory) itinerancy with the screening of a new work, Take Your Time, by Chicago filmmaker 
and audio-visual archivist Carolyn Faber. Following simultaneous exterior screenings at sites in Greektown, Logan Square, Rogers Park, and 
Wicker Park, PSA will host an opening reception at its old Logan Square haunt(s). Sites curated by Andrew Cantrell, Jason Halprin, Jason Pallas, 
and Erik Wenzel.


Take Your Time visualizes the subconscious act of remembering. Annemie stands in front of her home in Flonheim, Germany remembering former neighbors 
who fled persecution in the late 1930s, or were deported to concentration camps. Prompted by questions from her community, her fragmented memories 
take shape around visual cues in her familiar surroundings. We learn only what we ask her, and as much as she can recall. An unstable transaction at best. 
The footage is culled from Faber’s work-in-progress documentary While You Were Here.

Carolyn Exterior screenings: 5pm to 6pm at the following locations:

-Greektown: 850 W Jackson Blvd (Second Floor)
-Wicker Park: View from 1325 N Western Ave
-Logan Square: The Storefront - 2606 N. California

Reception to follow: 6pm-8pm at 2509 N Lawndale Ave

the Avant-Garde, and the San Francisco Art Institute. She is the Media Collections Manager at the Flaxman Library at the School of the Art Institute of 
Chicago and is lead Archivist for Kartemquin Films' Archive Project, inventorying 46 years of documentary filmmaking. Currently, she is currently at-work 
on her first feature-length documentary While You Were Here, which reconnects her grandmother's personal archive with her hometown in Flonheim, Germany.

PSA Projects is an exterior alternative project space that was started in September, 2012 by Casey Smallwood and Andrew Cantrell at their home in Logan Square. 
In June of 2013, PSA Projects began to take its program of screening site-specific, time-based visual works of commercial length by emerging and established 
artists to various places in Chicago and beyond. The works will continue to be projected externally in public spaces, to be viewed within the time of walking, 
cycling, driving, or otherwise moving by the space. Both the spaces and the works will explore a spectatorship situated between absorption and distraction, 
publicity and privacy, and movement and habitation.
