Summercamp's Project Project presents Obsession Obsessive Obsessed\, an outdoor group exhibition of arti
sts who either through material\, compulsion\, process or concept are consu
med\, fixated\, or possessed.
Organized by Fatima Hoang\, Elonda Billera &\; Janice Gomez.
Paul Pescador is an artist and artist organizer. His actions\, gestures and performances deal with is sues surrounding social disconnection and communal space. For Obsession Obsessive Obsessed\, Pesc ador will display photographs of created pairings between seemingly unrelat ed objects in the private spaces of Summercamp’s Project Project. Aragna K er blurs individual identity through experiential consumptions to create a digestive process that expels objective matter to be inspected\, avoided or re-consumed by the audience. Subliminal bells gently prompt viewers to dig through the layered depth of intuition\; thus\, cultivating space for onlo oker to become participator. Public presentation of this work creates its o wn virtual hybrid of culture and globalism.
In another installme nt of The Lost Artworks\, Matt MacFarland will create comic drawings to doc ument his experiences at the opening. The Lost Artworks\, MacFarland’s ongo ing project\, adheres to a structure that suggests a serial production with out the series. Any medium can be employed in the Lost Artworks. Video ca n be next to a sculpture made of dryer lint\, drawings next to a wall paint ing resembling a stain. The potential meaning of each part of the installa tion\, similar to how words are structured in a sentence\, is contingent on the piece next to it. Rochelle Botello’s Dreamboat is fueled by her exper iences\, both real and imagined. Botello uses cardboard\, paper\, tape and fabric to create absurd scenarios that engage issues of identity\, desire\, and control thereby exposing the complex and contradictory nature of every day life. Meriel Stern is transforming the topography of Summercamp’s Pro ject Project by crocheting a covering blanket for the land out of clothesli ne and a path of round crocheted galvanized steel wire and silicone nipples .
Through constructed membranes\, Jamison Carter ex plores the existence of spirit(s)\, phantoms\, thoughts and things that hav e no physical form. Carter’s precarious linear structures attempt to give f orm to the physically undefined while remaining tenuous in their constructi on and defined by their negative space. Kris Chatterson paints to explore abstract possibilities within self-prescribed limitations. The limitations serve as a conceptual framework to keep his process focused. Each painting begins with a series of structural marks that provide an armature for the l ooser marks. After being convinced of his motives\, the resulting marks bec ome passing thoughts in paint and time.
The OxyTree® is an indo or-outdoor installation by artist Laurie Sumiye that asks the viewer to ima gine a near-future where clean air is a premium\, and trees are sold and ma rketed as “all-natural air filters.” The work considers how obsessively buy ing green products blurs the reality of sustainability and science\, and ho w our belief systems and cultural habits shape what we perceive our own hea lth and well-being is related to the environment. Nancy Popp’s projects in vestigate the body’s relationship to site and architecture\, along with the risk and vulnerability of serious play. For Obsession Obsessive Obsessed\, Popp will invite aud ience participation and utilize the slope of backyard hill.
And as a compliment to Obsession Obsessive Obsessed\, Hector Oviedo will be featured in Guestroom. Oviedo’s drawings\, often religious in nature\, use a dense vivid color pal ette and extensive patterning suggestive of a rapturous experience. Oviedo creates and shows his work at First Street Gallery Art Center\, an exhibit ion resource and arts management center for adults with developmental disab ilities in Claremont\, California.
