Lo-Vid, Mr. Christopher, Ian Quiet, The Occidentalists + SHV’8!
LoVid, bringing to Shreveport their Sync Armonica, is an interdisciplinary artist duo composed of Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus. Based in NYC, their work includes live video installations, sculptures, digital prints, patchworks, media projects, performances, and video recordings. They combine many opposing elements in their work, contrasting hard electronics with soft patchworks, analog and digital, or handmade and machine produced objects. This multidirectional approach is also reflected in the content of their work: romantic and aggressive, wireless and wire-full. Lovid is interested in the ways in which the human body and mind observe, process, and respond to both natural and technological environments, and in the preservation of data, signals, and memory.
Mr. Christopher will open the evening with a special concoction of ambient music with keys and lapsteel.
Ian Quiet (SHV) returns to perform and release his new CD, Pu Pu Platter, featuring guest artists Meredith Mighell, Megan Westbrook (both of SHV) and Jason Siren (Santa Fe, NM). Pu Pu Platter is Ian’s fourth CD release and consist of 10 Asian and/or water themed song works. CD’s will be available for purchase at this release.
The Occidentalists, is Allison and Jordan West, who will stage an interactive installation of sorts entitled “Trying to Get Closer”, merging altered, wearable, thrift store finds with video projection and sound.
SHV’8 is on the walls, new works by eight of Shreveport’s most mysterious visual artists… including, Morgan Thomas, Jamie Heiges, Brittany Baucum, Jimmy Parrish, Brittney Maddox, Jon Mackey, John Martin, James Cousins II, Aubre Bauer, Jay Wireman, and Bill Daniel (Potato Masher Hi-Jinks). For some, this event will also be a send off for Mr. Mackey, who will be leaving for a year in Mexico to work with communities along the Texas/Mexico border…
