Join us in the Angels Gate Cultural Center (AGCC) Gallery on Saturday, July 8th from 3-5pm for the Opening Reception of Part Two! a shadow out of the noise. At 5pm, there will be a live performance outside of the gallery.
A hyper-visceral experience is created by Beck+Col’s avant-garde use of opera, heavy metal, and fantastical wearable sculptures in their otherworldly performances. Creating overwhelming sensations that employ both the visual and auditory in decidedly non-traditional contexts, Beck+Col unleash the inner-self to arrive at raw and unrestrained human experience. For this performance of Part Two! a shadow out of the noise at AGCC, Beck+Col play on the gothic concept of the double, exploring the horror that arises from the appearance of one’s exact duplicate. A followup to part one in which a single being is split into two mirrored images by a dark outside force, Part Two! follows them on a chaotic path desperately trying to reunite in the underworld.
Part Two! a shadow out of the noise, curated by Beck+Col, is on view from July 8th – September 9th, 2023. The gallery is open Thursday – Saturday from 10am to 4pm. To learn more, please visit angelsgateart.org.
