MICHAEL STUART ‘CONTINGENCIES’

Opening January 8, 2011 at 6PM at Scaramouche in New York City, is Michael Stuart’s solo exhibition ‘Contingencies‘.

Artist’s statement: I addresses the space between experience and the story that follows, the self and the idea of the self—the self as a body and the self as mediated, articulated, and complicated by imprecise descriptive mechanisms. Within a network of sculptural and photographic devices, I examine the continual becoming of a subject in simultaneous opposition to and dependence on the continuum from which this representation is rendered. The fabricated subject hinges its identity on a belief in impossibly static origins and in turn attempts to assign order to intricately woven yet predominantly chaotic systems. This determination to construct an ordered selfhood is, despite its inherent futility, instinctual and necessary. Hovering around tales of past trauma and a complex and often prescriptive filial mythology, my work exposes the space between perceived poles of self and the narrative shadows they cast.

Archival ink-jet prints titled ‘Circle Stories’.

Rymdreglage was formed in 2003 by Daniel Larsson and Tomas Redigh. Due to the fact that most folks who aren’t Nordic couldn’t pronounce their name, the group changed it to something simpler…Ninja Moped. They actually go by both names, so it’s just about as confusing as Prince and his symbol moniker.

Regardless, you won’t forget who this band is after seeing this music video for Rymdreglage ’8 bit trip’ where legos come alive in ways you might not have seen before.

1500 hours of moving legobricks and the take photos of them.
