Launching June 1st, 2010 with a special showing at LAXART from 7-10pm, "Superclogger" will mark Los Angeles-based artist Joel Kyack’s first large-scale public project. Conceived with Providence-based artist and bike mechanic Peter Fuller and developed out of Kyack’s interest in chaos, performance, and the relationship between individual will and collective control, "Superclogger" will present various puppet shows to drivers caught in afternoon traffic jams from a mobile theater housed in the back of a nondescript white pickup truck. Broadcasting soundtracks discretely to the viewer’s car stereo, "Superclogger" aims to briefly halt the progression of chaos by temporarily drawing the audience out of the commute experience and placing them within an intimate space of engagement and performance that highlights their own individual presence within the broader structure of the traffic jam.
"Superclogger" will continue presenting weekly interventions throughout the summer, culminating with a second special showing at the Hammer Museum on September 25th, 2010 from 1-4pm, marking the first collaboration between LAXART and the Hammer Museum. With the exception of its two special showings, "Superclogger" will operate only during evening rush hours at different freeways throughout the city.
The dates and freeways of every intervention are listed below, and a new "Superclogger" twitter will update on the project’s specific location throughout the days of its presentation (twitter.com/superclogger10)
