Description

FUENTES / This Nature of Ours is a site-specific performative installation for the Bowtie Project by Carmina Escobar that will be restaged over three evenings. Using voice and electronics, Escobar’s performance will blend into the sounds of the 18 acre post-industrial lot along the LA River.

This performance is part of CURRENT:LA Water, Los Angeles’s inaugural public art biennial, initiated by the Department of Cultural Affairs.

Please note this performance includes flashing lights.

Experimental vocalist Carmina Escobar is a creative performer, improviser, sound and intermedia artist from Mexico City. Her work focuses primarily on sound, the voice, the body and their interrelations to physical, social and memory spaces. She has intensely explored the capacities of her voice developing a wide range of vocal techniques that she applies not only to her performance and creative practice but also to investigate radical ideas and concepts regarding the voice. In her artwork the Voice is the phenomenon and conceptual trigger that links all the materials, analogue or digital, in order to create an experience that sets in motion the audience perception. She has presented her own work in diverse festivals, biennials, experimental venues, formal concert halls and living rooms of the Mexican Republic, the USA, and Europe.
