Wet Gate; Anne McGuire and Wobbly
January 29, 2010; 7:30 p.m.; Gallery BRSVP on Facebook
Fevered poet, moving-image instigator, and tortured torch singer Anne McGuire (a.k.a. Freddy M. when she’s belting it out) takes center stage in a lounge show that staggers under its own intoxicated weight. Expect vertiginous vocals, classic entries from McGuire’s pithy videos, and off-kilter accompaniment by sound-collage wiz Wobbly, who will envelop Anne in aurally manipulated ecstasy. Wet Gate will expand the image insurrection with a trio of film projectors manned by provocative projectionists Steven Dye, Peter Conheim, and Owen O’Toole. Using déjà-viewed film loops, Wet Gate uncouples image from sound, sampling and synthesizing the sonic tracks to create an exhilarating parallel auditory experience. Rescued from the bins of “cine-refuse,” Wet Gate’s cinema is a recycling collage that begs to differ.
Preceded at 5 p.m. by DJ Jon Leidecker spinning in the lobby, where wine and beer are available for purchase. At 7 p.m., Thom Faulders unveils BAMscape, a hybrid of sculpture, furniture, and stage. Come early, stay L@TE!
