Opening Reception of Fern Vargas Vargas: Night and Day & Michael Garland Clifford: Tropical Purgatory

February 10 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Locust Projects as we celebrate the opening of our latest exhibitions, Fern Vargas Vargas: Night and Day and Michael Garland Clifford: Tropical Purgatory.

In our main space, Los Angeles-based artist Fern Vargas Vargas will present Night and Day, an ongoing video installation. In its current version on view at Locust Projects, Night and Day is composed of 108 movie and television scenes, each one selected by using three preliminary criteria: 1. Scene must include a car; 2. Scene must include a police officer; 3. Police officer must say “license and registration.”

In our project space, LP will be presenting Tropical Purgatory, an immersive installation by the late Miami-born artist Michael Garland Clifford (1989 – 2016) realized by Lucila Garcia de Onrubia, Mickey Pomfrey and Oliver Apte. A middle ground between paradise and inferno, a place of waiting and repentance, this purgatory is one of leisure and beauty. A place where fate is cast and obstinate, things that once were fun now become maddening. The monotony and ennui of it all can really weigh you down.
