Mad psychiatrist out of context Chris Christion’s film installation Axis of Ego: When and Where I Enter riffs on religious architecture, incorporating confessionals, among other things. Dr. Mabuse, a fictional hypnotist who manipulates others to commit crimes for him, appeared in a series of filmmaker Fritz Lang’s movies in the 1920s and ’30s. He appears in Christion’s Axis of Ego, too, as do the voice of James Baldwin and samples from A Soldier’s Story, the 1984 film about WWII soldiers trained in the Jim Crow South. The installation is part of Far Bazaar, the two-day alternative art fair held at Cerritos College. 11110 Alondra Blvd., Norwalk; Sat.-Sun., Jan. 28-29, 10 a.m.-10 p.m. cms.cerritos.edu/farbazaar.
