Faster, stronger, laster, longer! When I took my ride on the Regurgitator I went crazy fast but not long enough to vomit.

Doyle’s style of sculpture/performance/interactive art is something that has to be experienced and felt in person. His art gives off a very powerful energy that does not translate very well through print or even video formats. Doyle uses materials that have already lived an entire life previous to becoming part of his artwork which gives the pieces an eerie lingering soul that almost attaches to you during an interaction.

Slivers Shivers and Snake Skin – a happening – Submissions!!!!

this is an event that I am putting together that will be taking place on April 16/17th 2010. Im chillin in Ontario right now but I thought it would be fun to plan a huge event while I am stuck here in the snow.

The theme of the show is suggested in the title which is better explained by ‘getting under your skin’ – something that makes you feel – affects – irks you. The title explains the theme in three different ways…
slivers – something that intrudes upon you physically that is not easy to remove.
shivers – a bodily reaction to your environment.
snake skin – a physical presence, visual, texture, relating to death, slithers, fear

As I have also suggested in the title its going to be a wild happening. These type of events involve the participation of the audience which could be as simple as making them dance or requiring them to move something physical, engaging in verbal confrontation, making them throw up, ears bleed, whatever.

At the moment I am looking at Chapel Arts in Vancouver Canada, as a venue since it has multiple rooms and levels and could easily have many different performances going on at the same time. Sensory overload!
Since this venue is so large I am also looking to fill some of the space with art that is more static – drawing, painting, sculpture – as long as it fits within the theme. There is also a stage and sound system so I want lots of noise!!!

Please email your submissions to:
zarahackerman@gmail.com

collaborations are welcomed and encouraged – suggest this to friends if you think they would fit. Sorry for any out of towners (not in Vancouver) but I cannot provide transportation or shipping costs since I’m working with a very slim budget.

Soooo……email me with a brief idea of what you would like to submit to the show – could be new or old work….and we will start up a conversation. Look fwd to hearing from you.

Deadline Extended to March 22!!! – but sooner is better 😉
