I am very happy to announce that I will be presenting a video installation as part of a group show at Transformer. Transformer is a very cool gallery space in Washington, D.C. that shows experimental and conceptual work.
Here is a description of the show from Transformer’s website:
“Transformer is very proud to present E4: Station to Station, an exhibition resulting from the fourth installment of our unique peer critique and mentorship program, The Exercises for Emerging Artists. Featuring four dynamic DC area based artists – Rebecca C. Adams, Carolina Mayorga, Rob Parrish, and Fereshteh Toosi – and guest curated by Niels Van Tomme, E4: Station to Station consists of four individual artist projects at Transformer incorporating video, sound, performance art, and conceptual mixed media installation.
Each of this year’s Exercises artists will take over the Transformer project space for one-week, beginning July 11, 2007, to present new work resulting from their peer-critique and mentorship experience at Transformer. Opening events including performances and artist talks will take place each Thursday, July 11 – August 5, 2007 from 6:30 – 8pm.”
My piece is called “Jack.” It mixes elements from the television series “24”, the Department of Homeland Security’s Homeland Security Advisory System, and archival footage. The installation explores the sensation of being an object of manipulation.
Please come out to each opening event if you are in the D.C. area. Here is the schedule: Carolina 7/12; Rob 7/19; Rebecca 7/26; and Fereshteh 8/2.
