TEMPLE OF BOOOM

The Temple of Booom is a collaborative installation by the artist-run alternative space Cinders Gallery from Brooklyn, NY. Artists Kelie Bowman, Kyle Ranson and STO will create a site-specific installation that combines paintings, prints, drawings, murals and sculpture. Exploring places of worship, rituals, shrines, music, and congregation, Cinders will build their own place of spiritual assembly based not on any one religious faith but on the faith of our loose-knit community of artists, performers, experimenters, and musicians.

Happening concurrently with the Austin music festival SXSW, Temple of Booom will feature a specially curated series of performances inside the installation that will act as a welcome alternative to the usual bar and club venues during the fest and will connect the often disparate crowds of music and art under one beautiful makeshift roof. The renowned Austin gallery Okay Mountain will host the exhibition and Tom Tom Magazine will curate special drum
performances.

Featuring artwork by Molly Colleen O Connell, Edie Fake, Noel Friebert, Maya Hayuk, Isaac Lin, Sam, Mcpheeters, Allyson Mellberg, Shawn Reed, Jeremy Taylor, Jessie Rose Vala, Erin Womack, and Andrew Jeffrey Wright.

With performances on Saturday March 20th + Sunday 21st by:
Beach Fossils, Grass Widow, The Beets, Gun Outfit, Awesome Color, White Mice, Screens, Lozen, These Are Powers, Sparky Dog, Wet Dog, Water Fei, Hard Nips, Katie Stelmanis, Valerie George’s Car Kit, Wet Hair, Aa, Dubbknowdubb, Dominique Leone, Chica Vas, and Pyramid Scheme

December 1st 2009 – Jan 31st 2010

THIS BLACK HOLE IS SUCKING at HANNA Gallery, Laforet Harajuku, 1st floor in Tokyooo!

This new installation by STO for Hanna Gallery is based on the “cranearm” arcade games where the player uses a joystick to try to pick up a prize with a metal arm and hand.
As a bored youth, I always hung out at the arcade in my local shopping center and so in the context of the hip shopping mall Laforet, an arcade was sorely missing.
Made entirely out of recycled materials including trash, newspaper, and cardboard, the installation is kind of like a dadaist take on a purposeless machine with absurd objects as prizes.
Sushi, a large pink head, boxing gloves, vegetables, insects, swords and knives are some of the prizes inside of the window box.
On the side wall is a large scale painting of a floating alien eye that references old arcade game machine graphics(I always liked the 80s game KRULL) with these tentacles
that are named after many of my favorite places and people that I encountered during my recent trip to Japan.
Go see it if you are there!!





November 22nd 12-6pm

CASE: at the New Museum



The event at the New Museum is the premiere of Case, which will also be performed at a small outdoor
community theater in rural Missouri in summer 2010. The New York production of Case will feature
many of the ten cast members from the upcoming Midwest event, such as political activist
(and notorious local hell-raiser) Ray “Bad Rad” Radtke, who stars as the main character
Henry Dorsett Case, a drug addict and computer hacker hired to execute an impossible cyber crime.
Case will also feature Brooklyn-based performance artist Sto as Lupus Yonderboy, leader of the
techno-anarchist gang the Panther Moderns,
and the actress Sasha Grey as the street samurai Molly.
The script has been prepared by the writer Brandon Stosuy, with sound design by Peter Segerstrom,
and graphic props by Breanne Trammell.

Read an interview about CASE here

OVERTAKE was amazing! Hundreds of people came, the art looked great and the show went without a hitch…until around 12:30pm.
I had actually just left, completely exhausted and delirious from not sleeping and breathing in that abandoned building air for days on end.
Sorry to the kids who got tickets but I think people got a little too comfortbale in there and forgot that it was in fact totaly illegal.
What a great nite though! Check out pics that Tod Seelie took here.
Also we are working on a book about it so look out for that soon!

OVERTAKE

Takashi Horisaki, Sto, Ben Wolf, Jon Bocksel, Sarah Walko, Idle Hands Crew, Richie Israel, Kevn Caplicki, Vinny, Lopi LaRoe



10 artists are commandeering a 3-story abandoned building in Bushwick. The building is beyond repair and has been vacant for years; thus allowing for total freedom. We are utilizing its condemned state to make installation pieces, cutting into the walls, removing parts of the floor, adding elements, using paint, thread, words, phrases, and rearranging available materials while being sensitive to the inherent beauty of the natural decay. Join us for one special night of art, exploration, music and the overtake.
