Ancient Japanese Art Ritual Comes to Newburgh
Mar. 4, 2017, 01:00 am
Tech World celebrates its’ first anniversary by presenting the installation of “Tech Art” on Saturday March 4, 2017, noon to 6pm at 113 Liberty St., City of Newburgh. Showcasing a nod to the Japanese art of Kintsugi, or “golden joinery” this live art performance will represent the first manifestation of the 12 Shouts to the Ten Forgotten Heavens project to take place away from the Whitney Museum proper.
Here in Newburgh, NY, a city visibly damaged and teetering on the edge of gentrification, broken plate pieces will be reconfigured and glued back together into a new form that contains the remnants of many. This living works showcase parallels of the work done in Tech World reconstructing pieces and part of computers creating a like-new and usable computer, also that which is happening in the City of Newburgh, envisioning a moving forward as a unified whole – a city that is beautiful in its complexity and completely unique. 12 Shouts will mark each solstice and equinox occurring between March 2016 and December 2018 creating a new ceremonial calendar and a contemporary mythology.
