Adapted from the press release:
This exhibition is the first solo show in New York by Arcangel, a founding member of the Beige Programming Ensemble. The show includes a number of new hacked Nintendo game cartridges – the work that Arcangel has become known for – and a number of new works in the medium of video. In the former group are a fully interactive iPodÂ® programmed for the NintendoÂ®system and an absurdly slowed down version of TetrisÂ®. In the latter group are Sans Simon, a video of Simon and Garfunkel in which the artist uses his hand to hide Simon’s presence, and Geto Boys/Beach Boys in which videos by the two eponymous bands are played side by side creating an oddly harmonic synchronicity.
Cory also has a show at Deitch Projects, which is a collaboration with Paper Rad.
