ECO-BAROQUE

  1. ʻBlack Mountain Fortune Tellerʼ
    2009, Bruce Conkle and Marne Lucas
    20 x 72 x 44” sculpture with video.

    -A slow-motion video portraying primitive Northwest Natives is projected onto the dark surface of a lake of used motor oil, surrounded by an impossible mountain range; addressing use of precious natural resource -oil. The imagery directly references an exhibit in the NY Natural History Museum, in which the primitive Native mannequins resemble the artists Conkle & Lucas, and alludes to both past and future civilization.
    Sculpture: Video, motor oil, vegetable oil, epoxy, foam, projector, paper-mache, pigment, pump

  2. 'Bolormaa vs. Lord It Over' was made in one take, in real time using a hand-held iPhone and my arm as a steady-cam; and some extreme spinning skills. I participated in the Land Art Mongolia 360˚ Biennial where I spent a couple of weeks working on my 'Eco-Baroque' installation in the Ikh Gazriin Chuluu National Park, Dund Gobi Desert.

    Bolormaa means "Crystal Woman" in Mongolian- I'd spent a lot of time that day collecting smoky quartz crystals. I knew that this epic landscape with limitless views of granite rocks, was a rare opportunity in which to shoot a music video for my favorite band, 'The Netherlands'. I hiked around listening to the band until found the perfect spot. I wore an ipod nano and headphones to hear the song so I could perfectly time the filming with my iPhone. When I fell I hit my head pretty hard but kept filming until the end of the song; afterwards I got sick to my stomach but the spontaneous doom metal meditation was worth it!

    *Special Thanks to Timo Ellis and The Netherlands for permission to use 'Lord It Over'!
    Lyrics: WE WILL LORD IT OVER, WE HOLD THE KEY; MAKE NO MISTAKE. UNTIL WE HAND IT OVER, YOU’RE OURS YOU SEE; NOW, BACK TO YOUR SEAT!
