“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.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
FeCuOp is a contemporary art collaborative established in Miami in 1997 by Jason Ferguson, born in Trinidad and Tobago and lives in South Carolina; Christian Curiel born, in Puerto Rico to Cuban parents and lives in New Haven, CT; Brandon Opalka born in Virginia and lives in Colorado. 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.
