As the line between art object and lifestyle accessory is increasingly blurred, does corporeal sensation itself also become commodity?</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This summer, Paloma is pleased to present a special intervention at Various Small Fires inspired by ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response), the psycho-physical &ldquo;tingling&rdquo; sensation triggered by various stimuli, that has become the basis for an entire online subculture.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Through a new sound piece by Berlin&rsquo;s Claire Tolan and a live workshop/symposium in late June, ASMR will be explored as a key site where the body, technology, ritual, and commerce intersect, and what provocative possibilities this holds for artists, scientists and speculative capitalists alike.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Claire Tolan&rsquo;s &ldquo;Maybe it wants what it wanted inside out&rdquo; will premiere as a 5-channel installation in Various Small Fires sound corridor (parallel to the group exhibition &ldquo;No! I Am No Singular Instrument&rdquo; curated by Samuel Kenswil), and will also be available to experience online<br /> via <a href="http://www.vsf.la/" target="_blank">vsf.la</a> and <a href="http://www.palomapowers.com" target="_blank">palomapowers.com</a>.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Claire Tolan&rsquo;s current work with ASMR uses the soft and mesmerising sounds as equipment in sometimes sweet, and sometimes sardonic, systems of soothing.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">On June 25, a symposium/workshop will convene special guests from the worlds of art, sound, neuroscience and online communities to discuss this enigmatic phenomenon and tailor live experiences for the participants.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>ABOUT CLAIRE TOLAN</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Since 2013, much of Claire Tolan&rsquo;s work has found its foundation in the sounds of ASMR, Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. Tolan has hosted</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&ldquo;You&rsquo;re Worth It,&rdquo; an ASMR show on Berlin Community Radio for over two years. She has also worked with ASMR in performance, recording, and exhibition, collaborating with musician Holly Herndon, writer and artist Inger Wold Lund, and artist Camilla Steinum, among others. Tolan was the</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">2015 Goethe-Institut and SPACE Perlin Noise sound artist-in-residence at London&rsquo;s White Building. At present, Tolan is developing an ASMR-inspired tabletop role-playing game (RPG) system.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>ABOUT PALOMA POWERS</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Paloma Powers is a creative agency and consultancy developing innovative, artist-led solutions for clients beyond the traditional art world. Led by Ms. Powers and her associates in New York, Los Angeles, Shanghai, and Amsterdam, the company specializes in connecting art with other industries through consulting, matchmaking, and production.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Paloma Powers (n&eacute;e Paloma Li-Cruz) is a Brazilian born polymath with over 30 years of experience on the cutting edge of the global art world. Early milestones include serving as first creative director of MTV Japan, uncredited stylist to Grace Jones, and muse to Helmut Newton. In her years on the International Color Council, she coined the term &ldquo;greige&rdquo;, and also pioneered the first art-by-Laserdisc subscription service. She established her latest company, Paloma Powers, as a response to limited business models within a changing art world, to elevate the role and value of cultural workers, and to broaden the audiences and contexts for art.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="http://www.palomapowers.com" target="_blank">http://www.palomapowers.com</a></p> <p><a href="http://www.instagram.com/paloma_powers" target="_blank">http://www.instagram.com/paloma_powers</a></p> Sat, 28 May 2016 16:37:45 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Hannah Black, Brian Khek, Ian Markell, Hannah Quinlan, Rosie Hastings, Ellen Schafer, Hans Jacob Schmidt, Jala Wahid - Various Small Fires - June 4th - July 9th <p style="text-align: justify;">Built environments sculpt and erode us, permeable and penetrable. Architecture and signage move us through structures erected to suit flows of capital first, and people perhaps somewhere down the line. Notice your chair: is your spine in a C or S formation? Design molds us into shapes; so do politics, expanding or limiting our range of motion. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Bodies are highlighted by absence: those left out of history and images, deemed applicable for negation, or willingly eschewing representation. LGBT people are made absent by a legacy of death, visible in shuttered social spaces, looming in self-conception. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Taxonomies expand and contract as ethics shift. We anthropomorphize flora and fauna which lack lingual vocal cords. The real estate of your presence is always a development opportunity: the material of flesh changeable through repetitive exertion. Are you unsettled by the proximity of <em>you</em> to the things around you? How did you end up looking so much like your room? </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Meaning changes from context to context; so do you. You spread your/selves out like limbs do.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">There is a persistent attempt to gather visual markers as a cohesive subjectivity, a whole person made ergonomically into political certitude. An individual, through forced applicability of well-intentioned political ends, operates as means to the reproduction of norms. Trending language favors &ldquo;bodies&rdquo; over &ldquo;people,&rdquo; abstracting those &ldquo;bodies&rdquo; whose corporeality would be politically constituted: a body that<em> fits into</em>, a body that works.
