Brody Condon – Performance Modification (Nauman)
Balrog problems at Moria! Show Postponed! OOPS! YIKES! Please note new date Feb 9th
Saturday February 9th
8pm – 10pm
10 performers outfitted in medieval/space/fantasy armor re-create Bruce Naumanâ€™s 1973 work â€œTony Sinking into the Floor, Face Up and Face Downâ€. Performed in slow motion and combined with movements based on computer game death animations, this piece is accompanied by a high volume binaural beats reputed to induce out of body experiences.
Closely linked to his past process of modification of existing computer games, as well as performative events with medieval re-enactment and fantasy live action role playing subcultures, this piece is presented in conjunction with his exhibit at the Santa Monica Museum of Art of Judgment Modification (After Memling) a non-interactive, animated recreation of The Last Judgment by Hans Memling (1467â€“71) using the unreal game engine.
