The Hollows

STUDIO SERIES HOSTS NICO TURNER, multiinstrumentalist, artist

Sunday, November 6, 9pm

Performance of the artist on the path to the Work. Join the musicians, writers, artists during the genesis of their current works. For Late Night:Geneses, we turn the main gallery of The Hollows into the artist studio, with their furniture from desks to beds, and objects peculiar to their creation. Witness their unique methods of working and ways of composing, thinking, studying, rehearsing.

As a contributor to the rise of experimental music in Los Angeles, multi-instrumentalist, Nico Turner, first became known in the underground music scene with her band VOICEsVOICEs and has played with such notable musicians as Brightblack Morning Light, Prefuse 73,Vincent Gallo, and most recently Cat Power. Her music is an atmospheric, seductive, unconventional and ambient experience. It is used to break away from familiar forms, to defy what's been taught, and to challenge what is readily known. The result is hauntingly beautiful soundscapes. Expect your subconscious to be electroshocked by this unique talent.


November LINE UP:
NOVEMBER 13: Musician and Instrument builder Trent Gill & net artist and software engineer Meina Kalayeh

Kalayeh & Gill will develop a series of loosely interactive systems. Audio, visual & tangible feedback networks will guide both artist & observer toward aesthetic destinations. These moments will be digitally captured for further processing & arrangement.

Meina Kalayeh is a net artist and software engineer based out of Brooklyn. Trent Gill is a musician and instrument builder. Constructing haptic systems to enhance artist's engagement with their tools.


NOVEMBER 20: Performance artist Kelly Garone
The studio will be open from the start of her movement and sound-based warm-up, and will remain open as she plays with the elements present in the room on that particular evening, from the spatial to the human and energetic. Anything can happen; an installation work, a dance ritual, or perhaps even an opportunity for viewers to participate. Come and be part of the terrain!

Kelly Garone is a Brooklyn-based performing artist, originally trained as a dancer, now re-writing what dance means to her. She was most recently seen in the Bessie Award-winning immersive theater show Then She Fell, and is currently in process incubating her own work. 


NOVEMBER 27: Painter Kerry Lessard

Kerry Lessard will be turning the studio wall space into an expanded diagram of her research of various crimes in her hometown of Manchester, New Hampshire. Collaging these letters, federal documents and photos will then give way to the making of drawings and paintings which will eventually be incorporated into the installation. 

Kerry Lessard’s work is concerned with the politics of viewing violence. Her father’s research from his career as a homicide detective is used as source material. The paintings and drawings she makes are snapshots of seemingly anodyne scenes but are depictions of people and places affected by crime.
