Performance by Secret Circuit
Brazilian photographer Marcelo Gomes‘ photos tend toward the blearily-focused and askew, his landscapes, nudes, and abstract forms awash with sunlight and saturated color. The work has the foggy nostalgia of a photographed memory, with flashes of blissed-out transcendence. Exploding, Still is Gomes first solo exhibition in Los Angeles.
Based in New York and São Paulo, Gomes’ photography is regularly featured in New York Magazine, as well as The Journal, Dossier, and Tokion. Gomes has two books published by Hassla, most recently Taciturn Heart. His photography was recently exhibited at BAMart (Brooklyn) as part of ‘younger than i’ll be’.
Secret Circuit is a new musical project of Eddie Ruscha (Food of the Gods, Future Pigeon, Medicine, Radar Bros)
“We looked up Secret Circuit, Ruscha’s new project, excited by the lack of extraneous consonants, and found it to be thoroughly cosmic. Dude has got a thing for vintage sounds, krautrock keyboards and hippie handdrums, like he’s writing the soundtrack to an imaginary European ’70s version of Weeds.” -FADER
