Public Art on an L.A. Freeway Near You
Artist Joel Kyack’s first public project, Superclogger, debuts this month during evening rush hour on freeways throughout the Los Angeles area. The project is an L.A.P.D.- L.A. Public Domain project curated by Cesar Garcia and presented in collaboration with the Hammer Museum.
Kyack will present puppet shows to commuters stuck in traffic jams from the back of a white pickup truck. The performances will be broadcast on FM radio and commuters will be able to tune into the show to engage with the spectacle. The ongoing performance piece addresses issues of community and chaos, intercepting the mundane with an extraordinary shared public art experience.
According to ForYourArt:
Superclogger asks people, one carload at a time, to reflect on the structures of their daily routines and analyze how much they are built by their own resignations.
Superclogger runs through September 2010, culminating with a second special showing at the Hammer Museum on September 25th.
