    Screening continuously on Renaissance TV

    Tune in to Renaissance TV for a weeklong screening of Jordan Strafer’s film PEAK HEAVEN LOVE FOREVER (2022).

    This new video work is based on a true story of kinship and betrayal aboard a transatlantic air ambulance from London to Miami. Including life-size dolls and starring live actors (in order of appearance) Marti Wilkerson, Jim Fletcher, Alexandro Segade, and Cammisa Buerhaus, the video is a psychological thriller that takes place in flight—while time moves glacially, reality becomes suspended.

    Renaissance TV is an online platform created to produce and host artists’ projects. It focuses on moving image and occasionally expands onto performance and sound work.

    Jordan Strafer (b. 1990, Miami, FL) is an artist working primarily in video based in Brooklyn, New York. She received her BFA from The New School in 2016 and her MFA from Bard College in 2019. She has participated in group exhibitions at Red Tracy, Copenhagen, (2020-21); Housing, New York (2020); SculptureCenter, New York (2020); The New Museum, New York (2021); and Haus Der Kulturen Der Welt, Berlin (2021). In 2020-21 she presented a web-based project, No Bag, for Participant Inc.’s online platform, Participant After Dark.

    Jordan Strafer’s PEAK HEAVEN LOVE FOREVER was supported by: Participant Inc., the Renaissance Society, Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant, Rocking R, Elissa Mogilefsky & Len Weiselberg, Matthew Goedecke, Bruce Hainley, Kabir Carter, and AK Burns.
