IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BLINKY
A Constructed World, Cory Arcangel/BEIGE, Sarah Ciraci, Paper Rad
May 23 – June 30, 2003
Reception: Friday, May 23, 6.00-9.00 pm
Thursday-Monday: 12.00 to 6.00 pm & by appointment
Foxy Productions presents Blinky, an exhibition inspired by the energy
of collaboration and participation. Blinky features anarchic aesthetic
ideas springing from a techno-driven culture. ’80s video games, flying
saucers, ’60s cartoon characters, and acts of transgression for the
camera are subjected to exhilarating treatments that provoke both
critical and pleasurable responses to received notions of technology and
history.
A Constructed World ([aka] Jacqueline Riva and Geoff Lowe) present
prints, paintings and video that contemplate explosive situations and
unruly forms of speaking. Developing from hacker culture, Cory
Arcangel/BEIGE present silk-screened landscape studies, processed
through Super Mario Brothers/Nintento code. Arcangel also exhibits a
video (made with collaborator Paul Davis/BEIGE) that is programmed and
played on a reverse-engineered Super Mario Brothers cartridge. Sarah
Ciraci presents digital prints of UFOs that are seductively psychedelic
rather than icons of social panic. Paper Rad ([aka] Benjamin Jones,
Jessica Ciocci, and Jacob Ciocci) present video and prints inspired by
Gumby, Arthur Cloakey’s [late ’50s/ early ’60s] good-natured cartoon
character. Paper Rad situate Gumby in a strangely familiar world where
he somehow maintains his sublime innocence and spirit.
Foxy Productions is a contemporary gallery that provides a focus for
inter-disciplinary practices, interactive situations and collaborative
ventures. Foxy Productions is directed by Michael Gillespie and John
Thomson.
