323 Projects is pleased to present our inaugural exhibition Mathew Timmons: The Archanoids. Timmons works in a variety of media, focusing on creating works using language, sound, poetry, and printed matter. His work culls from external sources and repositions meaning in unfamiliar and disarming ways.
This exhibition features the recordings from Timmons’ forthcoming album The Archanoids, which includes a variety of collaborative sound projects Timmons has developed with other artists since 2005. For a complete list of collaborators see below. Visitors to 323 Project’s unique exhibition space will be surprised to hear works that entertain but also challenge the very limits of comprehension, with poems, recorded performances, and experimental noise that address the breakdown of language, word play, and the parameters of communication.
Additionally, Timmons will use the 323 Projects space to invite callers to participate in a collective sound poem. This will involve callers leaving messages that will then be turned into a finished recording by the end of the exhibition on October 11.
323 Projects invites you to visit the exhibition by calling (323) 843-4652 or (323) TIE-IN-LA. The show is open all day and all night, every day of the week. You can learn more about Mathew Timmons: The Archanoids and 323 Projects by visiting 323projects.com.
