Artists Kelly Mark and Jon Sasaki explore the everyday through mimicking its conventions in video, photography, installation and performance. Both artists draw from the mundane, its ritualistic, repetitive, futile and absurd qualities. In questioning what is framed, both Mark and Sasaki open the possibilities of the everyday if only we looked more closely.
As a part of this exhibition Sasaki presented Ongoing Soundcheck, a performance with the assistance of three local musicians. Playing on the absurd repetition of a mundane act, the participants performed soundcheck for what seemed, to the waiting crowd, an eternal moment. Four hours later no full song was ever performed, only prepared.
