“The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”
― George Bernard Shaw
Antenna is a performative and interactive installation constructed primarily to solicit auditory participation created by the collective FeCuOp. With this installation FeCuOp seeks to create a social experiment with communication as its foundation. During the run of the exhibition FeCuOp will stage a series of activations throughout the run of the exhibition inviting conversations on communication and collaboration. This is FeCuOp's first solo exhibition since 2003.

The name constitutes an amalgam of the three founding artist’s names. FeCuOp along with new Miami-based member Victor Villafañe, are like the periodic table of elements, unique characteristics of each member, brings a unique variable property to every collaboration. Each an artist in their own right, together FeCuOp fuses to create work that encourages members to become a part of one collective voice. Working with various mediums and at times nontraditional venues, FeCuOp often creates work that comments on human behavior – through this, FeCuOp seeks to reveal unconscious patterns that drive our biases and shape our choices. The results of which are documented and become a commentary on our fundamental existence.
