Within

September 25 – November 5, 2013

 

Heather Cassils, Ashley Hunt, Mariah Garnett, Taisha Paggett, Guillermo Gómez-Peña, Guru Rugu, Roberto Sifuentes, and Julie Tolentino.

 

Curated by Chloë Flores
Reception: Wednesday, September 25th, 6–9pm

 

Cypress, CA, September 2013 – Cypress College Art Gallery is pleased to announce Within, an exhibition and program of events that explore the perceiving self, embodiment, and the corporeal production of knowledge, with artworks by Heather Cassils; Ashley Hunt and Taisha Paggett; Mariah Garnett, Guillermo Gómez-Peña and Roberto Sifuentes, Guru Rugu, and Julie Tolentino, curated by Chloë Flores.

 

Body-based perspectives and processes circulate widely in contemporary aesthetic fields that consider the body as a medium, subject and object. However, discourse on the subject is nominal within the field of art. This lack of discourse raises questions about the perceived value of mind/body awareness in the production and reception of artists work, and complicates efforts to position corporeal perception and response within an art context. Within contributes to and comments on these rare, but developing discourses by examining the ways notions of embodiment form and inform artistic production. This exhibition presents the following works for consideration: Mexercize (2013) by Garnett, Gómez-Peña and Sifuentes, a performance video installation and conceptual exercise program; Par Course C: Formation, Drill, Maneuver (2013) by Hunt and Paggett, a group of public participatory sculptures that guide one through “movement-thought exercises;” Guru Rugu’s Greatest Hits (2013), a room for listening and contemplation with audio mediations led by Rugu; On Our Backs: After Raised by Wolves (2013) by Tolentino, an interactive installation based on moving bodies and host to one-to-one open studio explorations; and Becoming an Image (2012) by Cassils, a collection of photographs and audio installation from a growing body of work intersecting sculpture and performance. Each project shows the significance of kinesthetic, somatic, and haptic awareness in the exchange of artistic ideas, and reveals a variety of relationships that stem from experiences of transference and embodiment.

 

Within will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue featuring artist pages and essays by Chloë Flores, Melinda Guillen, and Megan Hoetger.

Listen to our February 2014 broadcast with special guest Holyman, Patrick Foley!!

 

02.02.2014

 

Friends, this past Sunday Feb 2nd on Guru Rugu's Experimental Meditation Hour on KCHUNG radio, we spoke with and listened to the therapeutic music of our esteemed guest, Holyman, Patrick Foley!

 

"Patrick Foley’s Holyman project began as a breathing exercise to avoid hand tension while playing the guitar. practicing simple, repetitive and — most importantly — very long pieces, Patrick reached new levels of stamina and focus and it became clear that this music should be performed. informed more by ambient electronic than by classical or jazz guitar, at a club or a traditional music venue the audience might feel compelled too pay too much attention to these meditative pieces. only when blending into the background, allowing listeners to absorb it subconsciously, can the music’s true texture and emotions be felt."
