Charles Jevremovic became an artist because he couldn’t play guitar. As a student at Alfred University in upstate New York during the early ’80s, Jevremovic was exposed to visiting artists of rockstar magnitude such as Bill Viola, Steina Vasulka, Dan Sandin, James Turrell and proto cyber performance geniuses The Scientists. Their influence—along with seminal video artist Nam June Paik’s retrospective at the Whitney—altered his path. As a result he moved to Boston and co-founded Subterranean Video (S.Vid), an experimental video artists collective. Inspired by the likes of Ant Farm, S.Vid coalesced around the Image Processing Lab at The Boston Film/Video Foundation and earned a reputation for developing underground media culture through their exhibitions, live performances and installations. Jeveremovic completed a residency at The Experimental Television Center in 1983. The following year he had the good fortune to be Paik’s technician for a retrospective at The Rose Art Museum at Brandeis. He later went on to work in the burgeoning music video industry and in 1986 with then-partner C.L. Monrose he received the Michael Nesmith Award in Music Video from The American Film Institute in Los Angeles. His work has been shown in the Museum of Modern Art and at the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston, as well as galleries in the Midwest. In the nineties, he shifted from mostly linear, time-based video artwork to installations. Regardless of the media his intent is always to stimulate as many neurons as possible. His next big project is to start an analog image processing lab, an atelier electronique, where artists can delve into old school video using artist built tools.
