Mobius Movie Night (2)

Video works by the Seeking Kali Collective will be screened in Cambridge this Saturday, January 28th at Mobius (55 Norfolk St.)

Movie Night (2) is curated by Mobius Artist Group member EL Putnam.  We'll be exhibiting three works.  While it would be great if everyone came to Boston to see them, I'm going to assume that some who follow the Kali Collective's work won't make it so I'll post some links and descriptions.

The first is called Transmission, a short piece made as a tribute to a glitchy day trying to work out connectivity problems on Skype.

Transmission - Evertson/Vanden Eynde

We're also showing our animated audio work called Laments and Hope, an animated sound piece inspired by status messages from social networks. Short messages of frustration, hope or desires are recorded and layered similar to a musical round.

The final piece is Kali's Sari.  A Butoh performance by Shizu Homma, Jane Wang and Angela Ferrara with a hand painted sari featuring scenes from the Kali Shadow Theater is set to a score by Ian Evertson. The performance was recorded in NYC in May of 2011 and edited by Ria Vanden Eynde and William Evertson for the Seeking Kali Collective.

Number 2

 Kalicorp #2 cover by William Evertson ©2011

Our second comic is now in the mail.  Kalicorp Art Mysteries started as a "one of" project, meant to highlight some of our current projects in the 'advertising'.  It turned out to be a lot of fun to produce a comic look at the mysteries of trying to navigate the Art World. We're artists....We all want to exhibit our work...we want to sell a few pieces...we want that damn grant!  So, we soldier along putting in the studio time and filling the grant applications, networking and all the rest.  Plus looking at a lot of art and wondering, "how the hell is THAT getting shown." So to take our frustrations to a new level we're working on a limited run comic that explains the Mysteries of the Art World.

Take all three of us at Kalicorp, (William Evertson Susan Shulman and Ria Vanden Eynde) and after an evening of exploring our research, we've come to the conclusion that.....well....can't just spoil the fun but we throw everything we've got into explaining the Art World to the layperson.
