++SITUATOR CONTEXTUAL INFORMATION++

SHAWN ESCARCIGA
Capitalism yields artist as commodity as business person yields fuck that yields what would happen if I played by the structural rules of creating work as a performance artist as a means of destroying said structure. Watch my “process” bb. Let my demystification mystify you. My body is a tool for making money, my art should not be a tool for making money but also I’d like to eat regularly and enjoy nice soap without destroying myself for corporate America.

http://gantt.works/Call%20for%20Realizations

--------------------

Presenting a pop-up recording studio as functional sculpture, a double cassette album release, and a complex network of conceptual research, Iterations is an investigation into the production of recorded media in the age of digital plasticity.

Gallery visitors are invited to participate in a call for realizations during installation hours, to be featured as part of the resultant cassette release by Gold Bolus Recordings. Other processes on display explore methodologies for the creation of media that exists as both infinitely reproducible form and procedurally unique content.

Drawing equally from Walter Benjamin's conception of aura and Brian Eno's writings on generative music, these systems will culminate in an evening length performance intended to highlight the works included in Iterations as the confluence of event, artifact and documentation.

PERFORMANCY FORUM: SELF-CONSTRUCTION

Thursday, April 14th 2016

PERFORMANCES BY:

Zavé Martohardjono
LJ Leach
Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste
Amanda Hunt
Hector Canonge

An evening of performance art projects by five artists dealing with intersections between their own bodies and bodies politic: forms of collective demonstration and teach-in, semiotic presentations of identity and imagery, physical manifestations of constructive acts, and body-based experiments debate the "fabrication" and "construction" of social and private selves, ultimately negotiating "constructivity" as a paradigm proposing intentional ability to situate and design realities.
