ABOUT ARTIST'S ZOO
The Artist's Zoo is a 4D art production, applying technical approaches of conceptual art, experimental theater, new media & net.art + other dimensional forms of Live Art Event or Happening in a set piece sited at the AFHstudioBK for Bushwick Open Studios 2014. Featuring C. Fletcher Liegerot as "The Artist," The Artist's Zoo [TAZ] is the first version of what we envision to be a progressive, evolving project to confront the preconceptions, prejudices, behavioral tropes and separations extant in the relationship between artist, viewer and the society in which both operate as an artificial or contrived binary. Art for Humans lead artist Paul McLean will serve as facilitator, conduit, explicator and scriptwriter/anarchivist for TAZ. His working studio, currently containing new work for his upcoming exhibit "Code Duello, Old Hick & a Big Bang" (David Lusk Gallery Nashville, opening July 5, 2014), will host the unfolding event. Supplemental material and content will be transmitted and recorded via electronic networked devices during and between live sessions of the "performance." Fletcher and McLean are framing this phase of TAZ as a "workshop" for generating and percolating the dimensional narratives attaching to the base or pre-production concepts, to hammer out logistical issues, a clarification process that will both establish protocols and erase unnecessary definitions stitching to the elements contained in our set of concerns. "Most important are the questions that emerge, moving forward," says project consultant Milo Santini. "The term 'curating' has no importance in the environment we are creating. The principles we are most obligated to are not aesthetic, and certainly have no critical relevance. The last thing the players want to do is negation." Any artwork made during the workshop phase of TAZ will be donated to science.
