=, 2017

= plays on a large flat screen monitor mounted to the ceiling and consists entirely of aerial shots of the Los Angeles River captured during the production of Tribe’s 2016 film Exquisite Corpse. Viewers look straight up at the footage that was shot looking straight down, resulting in a disorienting inversion. = is the latest in a series of works that occupy an ongoing, more abstract tendency in Tribe’s oeuvre in which nature and natural phenomena are described though technically mediated, highly restrained filmic forms.
