Please join our current LA AIR artist-in-residence Carmina Escobar from Friday, November 9 to Saturday, November 10, 2018 at REDCAT for her performance Pura Entraña.
An elaborately prepared piano hovers above the stage for Pura Entraña, a hyper-sounding textural performance by experimental vocalist and intermedia artist Carmina Escobar, who activates the installation Piano Suspendido (Suspended Piano) by Jerónimo Naranjo.
Their collaboration with the Mexican improvisation ensemble Der Bauch (José Pablo Jiménez, Deborah Silberer, Jerónimo Naranjo) and experimental luthier Carlos Chinchillas, explores the subject of vulnerability in its poetic sense.
A magic sonic/visual surrealist realization, Pura Entraña (Pure Gut) follows a route of perceptual narratives in a performance that seeks to connect the audience to the essential sounds/gestures from the bodies and voices of the performers, and the piano and its entrails.
Invited artists include Dorian Wood, Roxanne Steinberg, Oguri, Yulissa Maqueos and the Maqueos Family.
Discover the Super 8 short films by B. Wurtz from 1979 and 1980, which capture the artist’s way of seeing art in the most mundane objects and situations. From interactions with his cat to observations about a pen, Wurtz’s simple premises provide anchors for subtle reflections on life.
Special guest Echo Park Film Center will assist in the projection of the original Super 8 format of Wurtz’s films. The screening will be followed by a lively information and demonstration session on the world of retro filmmaking in Super 8 by EPFC Coop Members Paolo Davanzo, Dicky Bahto and Lisa Marr.
