From the event page:
Join us for a reception during the SGC International Print Conference on Friday, March 17th from 7 to 10 pm. There will be a performance by Craig Dongoski at 8pm.
The Translated Mark is an exhibition at Whitespace Gallery of works by artists Craig Dongoski, Joe Tsambiras, Ann Stewart, Cassidy Russell and Teresa Cole. These five artists are collectively inspired by the process of printmaking, though each artist’s approach is unique and distinctive. Artist Stanley William Hatter referred to printmaking in the twentieth century as journalism of a line; this exhibition reveals contemporary artists pushing the line even further towards a new authority in the carved, etched and extruded line, as well as a musical score.
This exhibition is being held in conjunction with the SGC International Print Conference entitled Terminus.
About the Performance: Apocalypse NOOSPHERE
A multiple-musician set employing a number of Craig Dongoski’s drawing/writings from his current series ‘H E M I S P H E R E S’. Dongoski sees these works as a direct and non-technological form of biofeedback e.g. a neurological seismograph.The performance takes Rainer Maria Rilke’s portentous question, in his essay ‘Urgeräusch”, as a point of departure for inquiry. That question being, “what outcome would occur if the phonograph needle were allowed to traverse the sutures of the skull?”
Dongoski’s work will serve as descriptive scores for interpretation placing the musicians in their conventional role of instrumentation while at the same time using their respective instruments as a probe akin to the phonograph needle that Rilke describes.
