Unbroken-Unbreakable (VHS Diary) VIDEOJAM at the knockdown Center. New York City, Scored by Coatie Pop “Since my first experimental films I have based my work on poetry. For this special project I have unified the poetry of Basquiat (and prayers), with his influences; from William Burroughs to the legacy of the New York no wave music scene and the gospel Of San Juan, a favorite of his. Projecting VHS tapes on public walls of New York, this project seeks to revive the basic truth of cinema, concrete poetry, one flesh with night, collective psyche, transgression is a game. This is the story of a martyr artist who did not follow the rules, a neon poet, but above all a love story, swimming light – a new kind of religion, a VHS diary” At park church co-op Live projections, VHS dreams, and 3D sculptures. Planned parenthood monthly benefit show, and each sunday and Saturday. Collaborations with: Tzuan Wu, Hyun-wook Seo, Alice Cohen, Calvin Lecompte, Bentley Anderson, Chen An-An, Din- Ra & WaterghOst.
An An Chen and her love J Triangular install a rectangular charcoal wall drawing rubbed directly onto the wall, with her love, artist J Triangular. The title is taken from an artwork by Do Ho Suh, which Chen references and relocates into a queer context. Chen and Triangular will spend two hours rubbing charcoal within the rectangle boundaries, never stopping or talking during the process.
