Tribute "Art Fair" RKG 2016 is a big stage for artists Francesco Albano, Daniel Segrove, Oscar Figueroa, Randall Okita, Michael Davey, Bruce Eves, Stevie Ellis, Silvia Argiolas, Silvia Mei, exhibiting together at the gallery.
Featured along with the RKG residency project by Raul Altosaar and Marvin Luvualu Antonio, "Every Day Is A Lifetime", is a new short video "Scripture" by Istvan Kantor AKA Monty Cantsin Amen.
Istvan Kantor’s SCRIPTURE
SCRIPTURE tells about Istvan Kantor’s idealized revolutionary vision through a dark, hypnotic and ironic pulp fiction. The two protagonists of Kantor’s feature-like short video are a couple of humanoid scibot slaves. Their unusual encounter takes place in a hidden corner of devastation where piles of leftover cocaine and cans of cherry flavored cyanide are the remainders of a final doomsday. Their sensory system and modus operandi are equally damaged. They collect and reprocess information found in detritus. While the main subject of the video is Kantor’s lifelong passion for revolution, SCRIPTURE is also a sardonic sketch of today’s technological society. Kantor staged the low-budget guerilla-style production at a demolition site in Toronto, capturing it within a late afternoon after the workers had left.
