False Aristocracy Presents 2nd Annual Art Show: “Possession”

A highly conceptual, multimedia and performance, installation heavy, group art show with reactionary pieces based on the film Possession [1981] by Andrzej Zulawski. The synopsis of the show alone is enough to confound any audience.

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, Jan. 15, 2010 -- The second of what False Aristocracy hopes will become a famed succession of high concept group art show receptions is taking place on January 15th, at what some consider to an underground yet avant-garde venue in Bushwick, Brooklyn called House of Yes [HouseofYes.org]. Event is scheduled to start at 8pm and last late into the night, fueled by the fervor of dance and an endless open bar.

The show itself, staying true to last year’s emotionally dark theme of nightmare development and expression, is based on an isolated exploration of seven artists’ reactions to a film chosen by the curator and performance artist [Mademoiselle] Lena Marquise. The event however will take on the life of a party more so than the typical art show reception, with dance music provided by several local DJs.

The participating artists were chosen specifically by the curator for reasons yet undisclosed, their connection will be illustrated by method of art installation. The curator herself is to remain completely isolated, yet encompassed by the artists’ work, and will perform a piece at midnight, depicting her own reaction to the film.

The 2d work from the show will then be shown for a month at a venue further south in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, called Sputnik [barsputnik.com], starting January 22nd.
