3. The anticipation of having to wait…  can be quite exciting.

4. We’ve been snowed in for days. By now we ALL need to socialize. You’ll have 8 hours to come spend in the company of amazing artists and friends.

SOUP | ART | BEER featured in Bluffjournal.com

Soup, unhealthy Art, ask Beer, and Gordon Matta-Clark

By Sarah Allison

Artists Mary Coble and Blithe Riley are hosting a benefit art event at Red Dirt Studio to raise funds for their next creative project to be realized in London. The proposed project entails revamping 100 vacant flats in a 1960s housing grounds into an art venue and exhibition platform before its demolition. Coble described their artistic role: “We will be modifying a section of the unit by responding to the environment, considering its history of as a housing project, its current state as empty relic, and its future as a vacant demolished lot. Our goal is to create a new work, inspired by and spontaneously generated from the surrounding environment and our interaction with community members.

“The piece may be composed of a choreographed series of movements by performers interacting with the space and video camera,” said Coble and Riley. “These movements will be informed by how the Market Estate architecture frames the body, by our experience in the space and relationship as outsiders, and the dynamic between interior/exterior/public/private experiences.”

Similar to the work of Gordon Matta-Clark — who uses abandoned structures as his raw materials — The Market Estate Project is destined for demolition. Asked about the inevitable destruction of the work, Coble noted, “That’s part of the content of the project. Working with video and performance is an ideal for this, as they are both time-based and mediums of disappearance. Part of the appeal of this project is to interact with something that is about to be gone. It adds a poetic layer to the project.”

Different from Matta Clark, Coble and Riley are focused more on the interaction and modification of perception of people with the space. “Confusing past, present, and future. More Dan Graham meets Matta-Clark!” said Coble and Riley.

Coble and Riley will be conducting The Market Estate Project transformation in late February. The fundraiser event is meant to raise money and encourage community involvement — hence the invitation for people to come together, chop up ingredients, eat soup, and enjoy a beer. At 5:30 p.m. and then again at 8:00 p.m. there will be a video presentation of the proposed project.
