HOT CONSUMER TRASH
Exhibiting Artists: Andrew Braddock, Alex Chellet, Raquel Mavecq, Antonio Ramos, Isa Frost, Awilda Rodríguez Lora, Alex Romania & Arthur Romania
Video as a space of the real and imagined converging, a portal between worlds, virtual reality, a big brother voice in the background, surveillance technology, outdated technology, a fake space of actual things, stolen souls, performed personas, electrons and light, glass and plasma. UFO’s, monsters, porn tapes, sex tapes, MTV, Realworld, scandals, evidence. A tool of mass manipulation, hot consumer trash, replacement fire. These are some of the things I think of when I think of video - intertwine with contemporary memory, a space of pop culture, politics, disasters, consumerism. A space to remember, to forget, to entertain, to enjoy, to capture, to remember, to retain, to control.Through varying collisions between video and performance, ‘Hot Consumer Trash’ will examine the ramifications of video in contemporary culture, the home, the surveillance state, social media, and performance practices. Performances will occur simultaneously throughout Glasshouse Artlifelab for the entire event, by a handful of artists working across these disciplines.
The Neo Domesticity Performance Art Festival is 100 hour happening showcasing 35 immersive performances at the hybrid-domestic sphere of Glasshouse in Brooklyn. Performances happen throughout the day and night during the festival, utilizing the entire gallery space of Glasshouse in Brooklyn, which celebrates in 2017 its 10th season. Taking place in a domestic environment, the festival aims at the intimate/intimidating experience of a home. Works take varied time/space forms: some performances are durational and stretch in time and space or share a room with other performances; others are limited in time or confined to a small cell; while others are allowed to wander around the house, or create micro-environments of their own (by curating their own performance works). The program strives to create a dynamic landscape that fulfills contradicting features of the domestic sphere: nomadic and static, exhibitionist and intimate, public and private, host and guest, etc. The Neo-Domesticity Performance Art Festival is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC). Glasshouse is the art-life-lab of artists Lital Dotan & Eyal Perry, hosting artistic practices that are based on performance, participation and time based art in the domestic sphere, dedicated to promote deeper understanding of performative practices and social discourse. Glasshouse is liquid. Have some soup.
