Collaborative Research Group hosts Crank Sturgeon, Rob Hart & Jon Law: SOUNDCRATE

Open: 7-10pm

Collaborative Research Group members Dom Elsner and Charley Vines hosted an evening of noise, performance and installation. 

Crank Sturgeon
Crank Sturgeon has been active in performance, installation, and sound art since the early 1990's. A comical conceptualist, Crank is something of a misnomer: whether blending pun with the profane, or transforming the precious into an oil spill, a Sturgeon performance defies categorization. Accompanied by ridiculous costuming, pointed instructions and parables (gone awry), and even the occasional dirigible or two, these elements intertwine, transforming into space-defying interventions, and invariably involving audience participation. More than just possessing a predilection for the absurd, Crank wears the goggles of the perpetual optimist: infusing his processes with a classical struggle, and yet always with a leery salmon grin, awash in an undertow of delicious and celebratory noise...
