In Performance: Big Art Group – Cinema Fury at Rhizome/The New Museum (NYC)

Picture 1

Caden Manson / Big Art Group’s Cinema Fury is an ongoing series of experimental video art and musical collaborations; a spontaneous, open framework continually in production and evolution that both references the company’s history and research for current creations; resulting in unique performance-installation events. For Rhizome’s invitation at The New Museum the company is creating an evening length (1 hour) event that explores the idea of corruption in the information age, and the chaotic possibilities that arise in errors, interpolations, and interruptions in the exchange of digital transmissions. Through performative strategies of imperfect replication of characters, noise and feedback interference of texts, and the disturbance of the image of the performer, Cinema Fury opens up new interpretive pathways to understand the process of contemporary mediatization. Texts include selections from Big Art Group’s upcoming new production Flesh Tone 2010 and No Show 2011.
