Jan Kaps, Cologne
Left Behind by Runaway Interludes17 April – 30 May 2015
The exhibition includes four new 30 minute videos, each comprised of 16 slowly tracking
channels looping in an unfixed grid pattern. Blinking admission tickets, dead birds,
indicator lights, sidewalk cracks, and live documentation of the artist's performance art
band provide the grids with focused collections of peripatetically produced subjects. Also
premiering are a new series of floor-to-ceiling LED works Beaded Interludes (intestinal
dimensions) which provide the show with an illuminated verticality.
Misunderstanding divine escape, I gave my brain to math. I dated meta-physicians I was
told to destroy. Then I dangled applauded in somebody else’s mystery. Like an uninvited
mosaic, left behind by runaway interludes. Now I don’t know, but Ive been told, that sounds
are painted memories of speed, intoxicated politely. Like movie stars in general, a copy of
what worked the first time.
