Le Petit Versailles presents: “Timesplat” where the past and the future collide in the classic tale of chaos.
Featuring a performance by the timeless Kenny Scharf, video installations by Inbred Hybrid Collective, and analogue music by artiste extraordinaire Scott Ewalt. Sport your space cowboy look or your Neanderthal drag. Events begin at 6pm.
Kenny Scharf, known mostly for paintings and objets d’art, has also been involved in the New York performance world since 1978 when he began to dance for the late legendary Klaus Nomi and collaborate with Ann Magnusson. He was one of the founding members of the now defunct Club 57, and has since appeared at PS 1, Art Basil Miami, and Deitch Projects with his Vomidingleberry Performance Troupe’s “The Troglodyte Star Show”
Inbred Hybrid Collective was established in 2005. Our mandate is: to stimulate a consciousness of the external factors affecting our human existence. The type of interventions associated with Inbred Hybrid Collective, achieved as artistic concept, constitute a provocation for the public to reflect upon the influence that this immersion has had upon them.
Inbred Hybrid Collective presents two installations. ART STAR TREK, a multi-channel science fiction installation. Reliquarry, a multi-channel installation, documents one cave man’s return to the lost city Bedrock.
Scott Ewalt had his first gig at the tender age of eighteen. Webbed feet mono-analogue troglodyte, he remains supersonica.
