Zero Down . Curated by Catlin Moore, Matthew Gardocki and Marielos Zeka
Zero Down features eight LA-based performance artists in a one-night exhibition on Saturday 01 Jun from 6p-8pm. Concurrently, more than twenty artist studios in the 1019 West building will be exclusively open for viewing during the opening’s hours.
For the exhibition, Nuttaphol Ma premieres footages of a performance that took place at The China Outpost, Ma’s self-imposed sweatshop at the basement of a defunct art gallery in Chinatown Los Angeles. As a result of sewage water from the gallery’s toilet directly above the sweatshop overflowing into the space, Ma was told that part of the sweatshop was to be jack-hammered on 10 Feb 2012. In preparation for the event, Ma cut the site in half, one side to continue to iron while the other side to stage the workers’ excavation and realignment of the shitpipes below. The short film is entitled Shitpipe Explosion @ The China Outpost 10feb12.
