THE LUMP SHOW:
An Exhibition of the Un-Noun,
Including an Introduction to
Un-Realism & Revised, Amplified VOM.
Opening this week at one of our favorite places to write about, is The Lump Show, at Cornelius Projects in San Pedro.
California has forever been a fertile playground for uncompromising artists, look at the Found Art set from the 60s and what they did and what they spawned. The ground they covered.
In some ways Wendy Judge, John Dembski and Antonio Beecroft, the self-styled Conglomerateurs who've created the show, remind me of those 1960s mavericks. They're untethered. They're finding things that maybe we're just not thinking enough about.
The Conglomerateurs have been working together since meeting in the 90s, and now, despite their disparate locations, Dublin, Ireland and Long Beach, USA, they continue their joint research into heady concepts such as congloms, lumps, VOM (Virtual Object Manufacture), and the unifying notion of the un-noun.
Wendy is a visual artist based in Ireland, combining sculpture, photography and drawings... She is an auteur of armchair tourism and authentic experience. And is even now working on bionic, prosthetic replacement mountain tops. It's true! See her website here. John has long been known as an artistic purveyor of the language of the landscape and San Pedro's own Antonio, is all over indie books and and sound recordings and recently staged the Afraid of Modern Living show in Los Angeles.
The Lump Show is not to be missed and runs until date See the Cornelius Projects website for full details.
