Artist Erik Parker On His Work: 'Whether people like it or not, they know I did it.' Video description
FESTIVAL ARTICLE

Artist Erik Parker On His Work: 'Whether people like it or not, they know I did it.'

Artist Erik Parker, whose work "New Elands Bay" will be given to the winner of the Best New Narrative Director at #TFF2013, talks about his influences in his Brooklyn studio.

Statuettes and plaques are are fun to win, but kind of boring to own. At TFF, we give our winning filmmakers something a lot better: original works of art by world-renowned New York City artists. The Art Awards program, in partnership with Chanel, matches famous artists with categories in our competition each year. This year, Artist Erik Parker's piece "New Elands Bay" will be given to the winner of the Best New Narrative Director Award. Above, Parker answers the question of whether he follows trends with admirable humility.

Parker's contribution, like those of all twelve 2013 Art Awards Artists will be exhibited free and open to the public throughout the Festival. The work is on view at the New York Academy of Art until April 24.

This clip is an outtake from Matt Black's upcoming short film in which he invades the studio spaces of five of this year's Art Awards Artists, which we'll premiere on Thursday April 25th (aka TFF 2013 Awards Night!) To see the works that this year's winning filmmakers will be awarded in each category, go here.
