TBA-David Eckard and the Corberry Press

Untitled Document

Fortunate days are ahead for the cheap and lazy. Tomorrow kicks off an amazing month of art in Portland-no need to buy airfare, it’s all coming to us. PICA’s TBA Festival provides an incredible opportunity to bask in the efforts of interesting, thoughtful and engaging work. Wallow and take your fill – it only lasts a month.

After you’ve made the rounds at First Thursday (don’t forget about that!!) or taken in John King’s Extreme Guitar Orchestra performance in Pioneer Square head down to the Hawthorne Bridge via a People's Parade to see 2006 Oregon Biennial artist David Eckard’s Float and then head for The Works for an opening night event.

Eckard will float down the Willamette in a Rococo raft that will carry him on the rhythm of the river as he speaks to the opposing shores and the river itself through gilded megaphones. “With a sound composition created by Bobby Jones broadcast through the sound systems of his volunteer “fleet” of boats, Eckard links river traffic in an operatic moment of pageantry.”

The Corberry Press building is the main location for visual arts activity opening tomorrow and running through October 6/7. There you’ll find Harrell Fletcher, Matthew Day Jackson, Marina Abramovic, Beth Campbell, Johanna Billing and Theo Angell.

Harrell Fletcher
The American War
Harrell Fletcher has re-photographed photographs, wall tags and other supporting documents from the The War Remnants Museum in Vietnam. The American War debuted in 2005 at Artpace, San Antonio, TX, and has since traveled to Solvent Space, VA; the Center for Advanced Visual Studies at M.I.T., MA and White Columns, NY.

Beth Campbell
Some Things Change
A single-channel video that take on a voyeuristic view into a personal history playing out with multiplying endings. Campbell creates inconsistencies within space and time which become overbearing and intrude into the psychology of the woman portrayed resulting in her complete dislocation of mind and body.

Johanna Billing
Magical World
In this single-channel video installation children rehearse, in English, the song Magical World in a free after-school center in Dubrava, a suburb of Zagreb, Croatia. Billing presents a moment of renewal for a community still recovering from political turmoil.

Marina Abramovic
Balkan Erotic Epic
This major new work and multi-channel video installation explores sexuality and eroticism in Serbian folklore.

Matthew Day Jackson
Paradise Now!
Sculpture, video, and massive amounts of deck wood round out this ambitious installation by PICA’s artist in residence. “Repurposing image, iconic symbols and craft from varied mythologies, American history and Modern Art, Jackson creates hybrid portraits of martyrs slain and sacrificed. Myth and man meet head on as he expunges the sins of the past while wrestling history's demons to the ground.”

Theo Angell
Toungues and Snowk
A four-part single channel video depicting a section of Oregon forest destroyed by natural fires in 2003. Angell gives the trees a voice that knows no regret as they carry on a ghostly conversation that is perhaps thousands of years old. Trees morph into glowing pillars that hold up this blackened architecture as the artist places himself in this transitional world as its conduit/interpretor. Tongues and Snowk was created during a Caldera Artist Residency.

Sept 7- Oct 6 • 12-6 daily thru Sept 17 • 12-8 W-Sat thru Oct 7
Corberry Press • NW 17th (Building A) and NW 18th (Buildng B) at NW Northrup
