No Longer Showing.
In this new work, koosil-ja, along with Geoff Matters, continues her research on Body—dealing this time with the psyche of capitalism embedded in her own. Capitalism creates, flees, captures, and kills. We love and hate power. We obey and resist. We plug ourselves into the social structure that produces lack and fear, but what we want is something else. For I am capitalism, Matters and koosil-ja contemplate how the psyche of capitalism has taken over the body and they exorcise it, channeling various sources and conjuring movement, video, text, light, and sound. The project is created in collaboration with Nick Bixby, Brian Chase, Melissa Guerrero, David Or, and Ryan Seelig. Organized by Matthew Lyons.
