On 29 January 2010, Ballroom Marfa begins the second installment of its annual video series Art in the Auditorium. Organized by Whitechapel Gallery, London, Art in the Auditorium showcases some of the most exciting artists working in film and video through a global collaboration between art spaces in Europe, Latin America, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. As the representative from North America, Ballroom Marfa has selected A�da Ruilova and two of her most recent works, Two-Timers, 2008 and Meet the Eye, 2009. A�da Ruilova makes the techniques of montage, repetition and sound her subjects in works that are ultimately concerned with the creation of ambiance and atmosphere. Across stylistically diverse scenarios, each of Ruilova's films and videos are dedicated to a single happening that is steeped in inaccessible symbolism. As if entering a film halfway through, the viewer is only privy to a segment of a larger complex narrative. With no setting of the scene and no climax, Ruilova's works inhabit the filmic moments in which psychological space is developed.
