Zack Stiglicz

When noted Chicago filmmaker, painter, and SAIC faculty member Zack Stiglicz passed away this fall, he left behind a singular body of work. Originally trained as a political scientist, Stiglicz began a new career in art in the late 1980s. His richly textured films and videos weave together desire, violence, masculinity and metaphysics, “literally shred[ing] images of dreams, memories, symbols, and myths into a multi-layered, molten, fin-de-siècle statement” (MoMA). They remain, writes Stiglicz’s wife and fellow filmmaker Shellie Fleming, “both as documentation and as experiences for the audience…mercurial, volatile, yet infinitely tender.” Featuring: Aristophanes on Broadway (1991); Coiled (1991); Nothing, Nobody, Nowhere (1994); God the Pugilist (1996); Murder Will Out (2001); posthumously yours (2003). 1991–2003, Zack Stiglicz, USA, ca. 90 min, various formats.
