DOUBLE DOUBLE PROJECT
June 8th to June 23rd, 2019
Opening Reception: Saturday, June 8th, 7-10 pm
Double Double Project is an artist collective who have worked together since 2016. The collective’s seven core members, Perry Burlingame, Eric D. Charlton, Cait Finley, Rebecca Forstater, Jack Honeysett, Amanda Struver, and Jeremy Tarr are an international group of artists that gather bi-annually to show their interdisciplinary work together. Neanderthal Clickbait is the second in a series of seven shows in which one member’s practice becomes the nexus point for critical conversation. At Monte Vista Projects, the collective responds to the works and ideas of Cait Finley, whose musings on an unknown future have led to an exploration of the cave as an analogy for inner-space.
Within the cave, echoes of Honeysett’s soundscape, recorded using the acoustics of the Bendix Building, play throughout the gallery walls while Forstater’s user-generated house plants disperse her limited edition essential oils for the contemporary cave dweller. Burlingame’s digital avatars move rhythmically in a close-up view, juxtaposing Charlton’s uncanny virtual re-painting of Andrew Wyeth’s, Christina’s World. Finley’s mixed-media plastic sculpture displays videos of animals and ambiguous product advertisements. Struver’s found object figurative beings are displayed alongside narrative photographs telling their origin stories, and Tarr’s motion detector lights expose the exhibition that sits in darkness until audience activity is detected.
