No matter what you think of the artwork, one thing's for sure: Peru Ana Ana Peru gets up. From big pieces to small stickers slapped on any surface, you can't walk a block in NYC without seeing the name. This week, the art moves indoors as the Brooklynite Gallery presents the artist's solo show. Here are the goods:
"Brooklynite Gallery presents: '...And Then We Jumped into the Abyss of Numbers: Memories in Absurdity From the Bowels of Peru Ana Ana Peru'. The show runs from October 17-November 14. The opening night reception takes place on Saturday, October 17 from 7-10 pm. The evening features special musical guest Bomb Squad (of Public Enemy)."
"Brooklynite is located at 334 Malcolm X Blvd Brooklyn, NY 11233. Directions: A train to Utica, exit at head of train, walk to Malcolm X Blvd, take left, go two blocks, gallery is on Malcolm X between Decatur and Bainbridge.)"
"We will present multi-media paintings/drawings, sculpture and installations, as well as a host of video art pieces all telling strange narratives that will be loaded with an array of bleeps and blips, and non-sequiturs the likes of piñatas, shaving cream, goats, wolfwomen, baby heads, ballpoint pens, Rubik's cubes, birthday parties, insects, whiskey, wine, boxing gloves, and bows and arrows, just to name a few."
"As a much added bonus, the soundtrack to the opening night event will be performed by Bomb Squad [Hank Shocklee; Future Frequency], which is the force behind Public Enemy and some of the most significant albums of all time. They'll perform a preview of the new upcoming album of futuristic dub and live electronics."
"For those outside NY, the opening will be streamed live at the Brooklynite Gallery website (just click on LIVE TV). Hope to see you there."
