KPARK at Current LA

  • South Weddington Park 10798 Bluffside Drive Los Angeles, CA, 91604 United States (map)

Erika Barbosa and I will perform "this is what I call the light of god" at KPARK, hosted by KCHUNG Radio for Current LA Water, LA's newest public art biennial.

It's title a direct quote from a police officer describing his weapon, "this is what I call the light of god" is a participatory performance ritual for an age of police violence. Found sound of real U.S. officers, NRA members, and gun enthusiasts, activated by touch sensors, are embedded in the wombs of the performers: Our Ladies of Peace, vessels of the patriarchy, police brutality madonnas for the 21st century. 

This media art/performance collaboration combines my work with vulnerability and participation, with Erika's interrogation of police violence through the objects officers carry.

On two weekends at South Weddington Park in Studio City, KCHUNG presents performances ranging from experimental music to performative DJ sets. KPARK is a full month long series of ongoing programs and performances across three CURRENT:LA park sites in the Los Angeles area, presented by KCHUNG and created for CURRENT:LA.
