Shopping at Argo
Shopping at Argo (2017)
multi-media performance with live video projection / installation
In collaboration with Motoko Fukuyama
For “Shopping at Argo,” Aki Onda collects second-hand objects – a few are still functioning, but mostly not - from Argo Electronics on Canal Street, NYC and then collages them visually and aurally during the performance. It's a ritual that evokes the enigmatic kinship between the living and the dead, the functional and the broken. It speaks of memory and urban archaeology through the assemblage of objects.
