zapovedujemo: John Duncan – Ž

John Duncan – Ž

Ambiosonic concert, video projections of recent works, installation. In reverse order. Aesthetics of extreme noise, information overload symbolic, reduction to mere physical existence. No substitute for the humane, security or pleasure. Only violence (or guilt…).

John Duncan: The title of the mix I’ve prepared for the concert is titled MASSIVE, running about 20 minutes.

Before the concert also on airwaves of  Radio Študent Ljubljana – monday at 23.00! Hosts: Urška Savič and Borut Savski.

Interview with John Duncan and composition for radio-waves and vocal: The Shape of Minds to Come. The title is a paraphrase of the usually more positive  “the shape of things to come” – a more optimistic belief on the future -> “new=better”. The paraphrase points to the contrary.

As ouverure to the concert John Duncan suggests his 20-minute video “HORROR OBSOLETE: Endless Mardi Gras” (2017).

The installation VAMPIRE RELIEF is another comment on the social situation. A wooden sharpened pole, fixed to the floor, a ladder for ease of access and an engraved board with a list of selected social negativities – a suggestion.

 

 

The concert will also be streamed live on the net.

John Duncan (Wichita, Kansas 1953) is American artist, studied with Allan Kaprow (who launched the word “happening”). Worked in Los Angeles, Tokyo, Amsterdam, currently in Bologna Italy. His areas are performance/ actionism, instalations, contemporary music, video and experimental film. His events are  a constant research into basic existential phenomena – controverse and often brutally direct. This is the third visit of John Duncan at Cirkulacija 2.
