ABOUT RUMMET – COPENHAGEN:

So what is Rummet, you might ask. It is the kind of place worth mentioning in a mag like this one.
For starters, the place where Rummet is placed quite unique. The rooms that create Rummet are in an old Jewish mansion in Copenhagen. In a part of Copenhagen called østerbro. This house includes a winter garden, a patio, and the bar and gallery space that are titled Rummet, which means The Room in English. This place makes the space perfect for doing small, intimate concerts. Everyone can be heard and is welcome, and it is not uncommon for the people attending events at the place to have long conversations with the event holders and artists exhibiting.

I have chosen here to put a few pictures from the last big exhibition opening that I did in the house. We went for dark, gloomy and wonders for the eye. In my own opinion the mission was accomplished. Standing outside the house around midnight enjoying a little time away from the inside and the heat I fell into a conversation with a guy that came when we opened. He explained to me he only arrived to take a look at Michel Winkler-Kroghs paintings and then leave again. He couldn’t. He felt some sort of lust to continue exploring the place, the atmosphere and paintings. That’s the purpose of this place, and it is at your service.

COPENHAGEN PSYCH FEST:

CPHPSYCH_DRAFTS_RA4_REEDITS_OUTER (2)

MILWAUKEE PSYCH FEST:
mpf2

A message from our dear friend, Suni Daze:

I started doing the festival in hopes of bringing some of the music that I’m really into, to the town that I live in. I love being able to have my incredibly talented friends play here in town and the festival is definitely an outlet for that. I get to expose my friends and their bands to a new audience, bring some music that I absolutely love into the city that I live in all while enabling the freak flag flyers to do their thing! It’s great!!! Ultimately it’s about building a stronger community of artists and musicians. Locally,  regionally, nationally and globally. The main goal is to get local businesses, bands and artists involved, to help them network and meet other like minded people from around the world all while exposing attendees to things that they might not normally listen to or see. It’s all about building a stronger, more positive, more helpful music and art community and it so far it seems to be working!!!

CURRENT PROJECTS:

COXCOMBS (FCDI 001)

cxcmbs front

Coxcombs is one of the working names of Texas rock contrarians Indian Jewelry. Like IJ, Coxcombs embraces the idea of freedom from genre. Unlike IJ, Coxcombs works with more switchblades than jewels.

While at other times the band plays sets of free-glam and power electronics, this album, their debut, features a set of quick, evil, rock songs the band has been working on since 2009.

The music is varied, drawing on flattened funk rhythms and endlessly buzzing guitar riffs. Inspired by coxcombs such as Baudelaire and Huysmans, the songs address neurological tunneling, psychological collapse, vanity, and the shadow of death.

Written and recorded in Houston, Texas and Queens, New York, 2009-2012

Appearing on this album:

Tex Kerschen — Indian Jewelry, Pleasure 2, Gaza Boots
Erika Thrasher – Indian Jewelry, Swarm of Angels, Persuasion
Brandon Davis – Indian Jewelry, Terrible Eagle, Electric Set
Tyler Morris – Balaclavas, Subsonic Voices, Hooked Rugs

“All bad poetry springs from genuine feeling.”
Oscar Wilde

Coxcomb Reviews:

“But fuuuuuuuck was it refreshing when Coxcombs started playing. You may know them by their former name of “Indian Jewelry,” or as I like to call them, “the most blistering Kraut-inspired shimmering, pulsating peal of noise and energy that has emanated from a small group of people in my lifetime.” Gone were the 3 minor chord rock jangles and songs about girls. Hello, the deepest recess of my mind, which became all brainstem, as I literally started shaking with a St. Vitus’ Dance fervor, my eyes rolling back into my head, my arms flailing at my sides, and my 5th chakra (or perhaps a genetic parasite lodged in all human DNA but long thought to be dormant) started to leap up and down inside my chest, as though my intellect had stashes away a mistress in my heart and was fucking her. Coxcombs is the Barry White of lizard brain chakra fucking.”

-Dan Collins, LA Record

“Coxcombs: We’re not certain exactly who’s involved in this doomy project, but there’s at least one member of Indian Jewelry here. “Below Us,” which they term “deadfunk” on their Soundcloud page, seems eerily reminiscent of Balaclavas rhythms and Fiskadoro.”

Recommended if you like: Chrome, Swell Maps, Roky Erickson, Samhain, the Fall, Butthole Surfers.

COMMUNITY & EVENTS:

Keep your eyes open for NEMCATACOA THEATER, on tour during 2013:
NEMCATACOA1

Silent figures move through the streets, plazas, passageways and corners of any place. Their bodies explore the details of the architecture to reinvent it. Subtle music serves as a thread between the pedestrians and this mobile society which will create images that fit into the space and its context. Static images that can go from heartbreaking to hopeful. A society open to a dialog with whoever lives there, a poetic-visual dialog in which reflection and silence acquire a different value than usual. The unity of color and movement are part of the language of the Landscape Reinvention Society, which passes by like a flock of birds.

A mobile spectacle that takes the streets of any place with acrobatic language on stilts and live music.

ABOUT:

Nemcatacoa Teatro began at the end of 2000 as an expressive necessity for a group of youth focused on the training, exploration and use of stilts as instrument of the actor. Since 2000, they have been researching diverse techniques of circus, dance and theater as part of their training. Nemcatacoa has created 10 shows, including parades, street theater plays, street interventions and circus performances in different events, while searching for their own language based on physical theater and acrobatics on stilts.

Nemcatacoa Teatro performs in outdoor and non-conventional spaces, bringing free theater to audiences. They also develop programs and activities that make strong relationships with their community.

Their active participation with the Colombian Community Theater Network, the Theatrical Exchange Route (R.I.T.) and festivals, increased their presence across Colombia. These relationships eventually brought them to Cuba, Ecuador and Mexico, where they presented their creations and developed pedagogical activities, as well as in other countries such as the USA, Denmark and Germany. In 2006, directors Nicolas Cifuentes and Freddy Torres received the award for “Best Young Directors – Street Theater,” from I.D.C.T. (Instiuto Distrital de Cultura y Turismo – Arte Dramatico) with the show “Germinares.”

In 2010, director Nicolas Cifuentes studied with The Carpetbag Brigade Physical Theater in California, USA, after which he was invited to assist in the direction of their performance “Callings,” while touring Colombia.

In 2011, Nemcatacoa began to create “Landscape Re-Invention Society,” and hosted The Carpetbag Brigade during an exchange laboratory.

At the beginning of 2012, the XIII Iberoamerican Theater Festival of Bogota presented the new collaborative project between The Carpetbag Brigade and Nemcatacoa Teatro, “Dios de la Adrenalina.”

Touch (Off the Grid) – NEW project & Kickstarter!

Dear friends,

What a busy couple of months!

We have just spent 2 weeks together in residence at The Arts Students League of New York working solidly on a NEW project called Touch (Off the Grid) – which is a solar powered installation of touchlights, based on the guerilla style street installations we performed throughout Brooklyn in 2011. We are very excited to announce that Touch (Off the Grid) has been accepted into FIGMENT NYC 2012 which is a participatory arts festival held on Governor’s Island in NYC in June. We are installing some of the touchlights in a very cool treehouse – designed and built on the island for the festival by Benjamin Jones and Sean P Krause. We are very excited about this!

We have put together a Kickstarter campaign in order to raise funds for materials to complete the project and to hopefully also cover Rebecca’s travel costs back to NYC for the installation. For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, Kickstarter is an awesome online creative project fundraising portal.

We are hoping to raise a minimum of $3000 – and we have until June 1 to do it!

We invite you to take a look at our Kickstarter page – where you’ll get to see a bit of a sneak preview of the work in progress – and hopefully you’ll be inspired to back us! We have made some fun gifts such as prints, t-shirts, original artworks and even some single touchlights as rewards for our backers. We would really appreciate your support – any amount will be helpful! we would love for you to be involved in making this thing happen! – and please feel free to pass this on to anyone else who you think might be interested in supporting our project!

To view our Kickstarter project – click here

Many thanks in advance!

Also a big thank you to everyone who came to see us perform at the opening of Knot Your Average Knit at the end of March – the show is still on until May 11th at City Without Walls – so if you haven’t had a chance to see it already you have a few days left!

best wishes and love,
Rebecca Kinsey and Hannah Lamar Simmons

PASSING BY A BUNCH OF BEETLES PREPARING THEIR GRACIOUS DINNER PARTY

INSTALLATION BY JONGIL MA

WITH ELIZABETH WINTON

SEPTEMBER 9-30th 2011

501 LEX AT 47TH ST

In his second show at The LAB Gallery, Jongil Ma will be collaborating with Elizabeth Winton to create a forested enclave that will transform The LAB into a real life illustration as if `from a children’s book. The scene will include a troupe of elaborate, fantastical beetles and a wolf preying over them as they prepare for a feast. They will be surrounded by both urban and wild landscapes with flickering buildings, leafless dead trees, paper cutouts and bushes.

Jongil Ma, best known for creating large abstract installations of bound colorful wood strips, and Elizabeth Winton, who has been working with mixed media collage and painting for years, will come together to build a surreal picture of our time’s concerns. Steeped in both humor and a more serious social awareness, the installation will illuminate the unique fears of our current time. The piece will play off innate tensions between the playful and political, the individual and the social, the real and manipulated.

Jongil Ma received his BFA from the School of Visual Arts in 2002. He has had a solo exhibition at The LAB Gallery in 2009 as well as participating in shows at in Jamaica Flux: Workspaces & Windows at Jamaica Center For Arts & Learning in Queens, LMCC Governors Island Project in 2010, as well as public art projects sponsored by the Ministry of Culture & Tourism of Korea in Kwangju and Damyang respectively. His work has been featured in international exhibitions including the 2009 International Incheon Women Artist’s Biennale in Korea and he participated in the Lodz Biennale 2010 in Poland.  Jongil  recently showed  in the AIM Biennial Exhibition in the Bronx Museum in June and ‘Flow. 11 Art and Music at Randall’s Island, Islip Art Museum in May, 2011 and Space K Gallery at Kolon Building in Gwacheon Korea. His awards have included the INC Visual Arts Award from the AHL Foundation and a Fellowship from Socrates Sculpture Park, The artist of year from Hanyang. Jongil Ma website

Elizabeth Winton is a Brooklyn-based visual artist working primarily in painting, collage and printmaking.  She received her BA with a focus in fine art from Connecticut College in 1991. During this period and continuing after graduation she studied independently in New York, working as an artist’s assistant to Elizabeth Murray and Mimi Gross. Elizabeth has had residencies in Johnson, VT and retreats in Provincetown, MA and East Hampton, NY. She has exhibited her work throughout the United States, including shows at Lower East Side Printshop, New York, NY; Kolok Gallery, North Adams, MA, Margaret Bodell Gallery, New York, NY; the Ruby Green Contemporary Art Center in Nashville, TN; and the Guadalupe Cultural Center, San Antonio, TX. Her most recent solo show, curated by Douglas Dunn, was at CUE Art Foundation in 2011. Elizabeth Winton website

The LAB (for installation + performance art) is a New York based, converted storefront turned fishbowl producing 20+ fast paced performance art and installation exhibitions annually. Aimed at the furious midtown foot traffic, The LAB’s programming is designed to confront modern relationships between art and audience and seeks to force an interaction between the high energy, “outrospective” exhibitions it produces and the nearly 25,000 daily passersby. The LAB is located on the North East corner of 47th and Lex and is a Roger Smith Collaboration. The LAB Gallery website

GALERIA, Queens’ newest alternative art space launches a monthly exhibition program dedicated to showcase Queer Art by local and national artists working in various media. GALERIA is a new initiative created by CINEMAROSA in partnership with HOMBRES LOUNGE.  The monthly art exhibitions will take place at the Lower Level of the above mentioned Gay establishment staring in August and continuing through the end of the year.

GALERIA’s first exhibition, QUEER BODIES, curated by artist Hector Canonge, focuses on visual representations of the masculine and / or feminine physique and the manner in which gender and identity are constructed. Artists working using various media were selected based on a city wide open call.  Their works approach the subject matter and give a new angle to what constitutes being Gay, Lesbian or Transgender.

Selected artists are:
Drawing: Carl Ferrero, Anthony Gonzales, Tai  Lin; Painting: Giustina Surbone; Photography: Angel L. Brown, Emma Gluckman, Dahn Hiuni, Andrew Mueller; Mixed Media: Tamara Wyndham; and Video Art: Kevin Simmonds, and Jess Whittam.

Hector Canonge explained that “in addition to the monthly exhibitions featuring the work of Queer visual artists, GALERIA will serve as a cultural hub for the presentation of Performance Art, video screenings, and social events for networking and dialogue.”  Mauricio Fino, manager of HOMBRES LOUNGE announced that he is “thrilled to collaborate in the project.” He added that he “always wanted to do something with CINEMAROSA, and this is the perfect time.” The partnership is one of a kind as it will serve to introduce the public to art outside the traditional exhibition environment.

GALERIA’s upcoming exhibitions are:
Genitalia
September 28 to October 19, 2011
The exhibition will focus on the erotic exploration of the feminine and masculine reproductive organs and their placement and interpretation in Popular Queer Culture.

Q-Topias
October 26 to November 16, 2011
The exhibition will focus on the relationship between physical, imagined or virtual spaces where a Queer identity is created and nurtured.

Positive Art
November 24 to December 14, 2011
The fourth exhibition at GALERIA will bridge the gap between AIDS activism and HIV prevention as it happens in gay bars and clubs in major urban centers.

Address:
GALERIA is located at HOMBRES LOUNGE, Lower Level
85-28 37th Avenue, Jackson Heights, Queens.

Directions:
#7 Train to 82nd Street. Walk on 82nd Street to 37th Avenue, turn right to 85th Street.
