Documentado/Undocumented: Ars Shamánica Performática
La Pocha Nostra and SF Camerawork present Documentado/Undocumented: Ars Shamánica Performática, featuring Felicia Rice, Guillermo Gomez-Peña, Jennifer González, Gustavo Vasquez, and Zachary Watkins.
Join us for an exciting evening of experimental video, live music, book printing and spoken word performances featuring the work-in-progress, Documentado/Undocumented, an artists' book bringing together texts by Guillermo Gómez-Peña, video art by Gustavo Vazquez, commentary by Jennifer González, sound art by Zachary Watkins and book work by Felicia Rice. This event is inspired by “Intox Lounge,” a European style event format featuring simultaneous activities at once.
About the book:
The object itself carries within a crisis of identity: What is it exactly? A stage for an intimate one-on-one performance? An unusual video screening room? A personal multi-media altar? A “vanity” used for preparing for a performance? It is all these things and it is also an original book devised by Felicia; a book in search of a new format and a new audience. Each element (the book itself, the vanity/altar box, the performance video, the critical essays, the aural experience) stands by itself, but together they form an indescribable whole. And it is precisely this whole that we are after.—Guillermo Gómez-Peña
