About the event

CLOSING NIGHT TUESDAY, 6/27 7:30 PM A NIGHT TO PERFORM IN ONE'S SKIN FEATURING LAMIN FOFANA, HOLLYO, JOE WAKEMAN MILLENNIUM FILM WORKSHOP 167 WILSON AVE, BROOKLYN, NY 11237 Organized by Odalis Valdivieso Produced by Odalis Valdivieso and Joseph Wakeman Video editing by Adrian Cameron Analogon Skin is a multimedia exhibition featuring a social matrix conformed by a group of transdisciplinary individuals sitting on a collective experiment inspired by a work of artist Peter Weibel. The video installation titled Vulkanologie der Emotionen (Volcanology of the emotions), 1971-73, which was a reconstruction of a body performance of the same name that took place in Vienna in 1971. It was in that exhibition that Wiebel’s work pushed forward the recognition  of an artists’ capacity to serve as a direct reflection of society. This show brings together images that grapple with notions around existence and its varying interpretations. The work presented primarily utilizes present-day technology to create videos, texts and audio. From data extraction, text, to a dynamic wall of 16 monitors that pays tribute to Weibel’s early work, this exhibit returns the focus to the reconsideration of reality as a sum of individual experiences. The works offer the viewer a visual illusion that is at once a clear and challenging prompt to consider a profound question: How do we know what’s real? Illusions are  wrongly perceived or interpreted by the senses. These projections of the world bring forth its thingness and dispense altogether with semiotic processes—with the production of meaning through the bias of interpretation. So, if in this presence-culture an image represents a trace of something material and if its presence is a trace of nothing—of nothing from which we can learn nothing—we should enjoy it then in a simple way, as a moment of fleeting excess. Analogon Skin is then the surplus of the individual as well as the social involved in the matrix conforming the exhibition.
