The Diluvial Hood. A non-linear operatic landscape in two acts
The Diluvial Hood is born of an abstract narrative set in post-deluge New Orleans. Presented through the delusional canvases of feral children, this project proposes a re-created hybrid non-linear landscape. Confronting a massive dysfunctional void, the collaborative teams, MIJU and Club S&S address the empty space as potent existential fodder.. The two teams probe unusual solutions towards reconstructing a visual complex social structure while repositioning standard popular and subversive mores. As is common to both team's format, found and manipulated materials, music, video and general use of low-tech, will form the basis of the regenerated landscape.
MIJU is a collaboration between San Francisco Bay Area artists Michele Muenning and Juan Carlos Quintana. They started the collaboration 2006 in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Club S&S is a collaborative team between New Orleans based artists Sibylle Peretti and Stephen Paul Day. Their recent major project was realized during the Prospect1, with a grant from the Joan Mitchell Foundation.
