The Imitation tells the story of Alice, a young “conceptual artist”
struggling to claw her way through a cutthroat art market, willing to
sacrifice anything to realize her dream. When her path intersects with
an unscrupulous financier, she betrays a dark secret to her ambition
that consumes both their fates. As the pair begins a frantic series of
attempts to regain control of their storyline, her secret corrodes
their schemes and pulls her and her accomplice into an upsurging
cthonic chaos.
Presented in this incarnation as a four channel video installation with
Big Art Group members Viva Ruiz, Ned Stresen-Reuter, Heather Litteer
and David Commander synchronized with the live concert musicians, The
Imitation is a performance fabricated from the detritus and trash of
New York City, repurposed and repackaged into a hallucinatory,
psychedelic, celebratory, and corrosive invocation. The Imitation
explores the dark temptation of the creative act.
