“We’re going to fight fire with marshmallows.” Leslie Zevo, 1992.
Tutti Frutti is a solo exhibition of works by multidisciplinary artist, composer, and curator Will Owen.
The exhibition explores and challenges ideas of the collective human psyche as a “sum of all parts.” Using sound, food, technology, and installation design, Will draws reference from cellular cytoplasm, Little Richard, Kool-Aid, Junior High School, Stockhausen’s “Space Music,” and aerobic exercise. Addressing the universal reality that sometimes we all make ourselves seem smaller in order to make ourselves more consumable, Will is interested in imploding the pat concept of “no man is an island” into “EVERYONE is an interlocked Pangaea, y’all.”
The exhibition space itself will be a meandering sculptural and sonic installation, and cellular dead zone, the artist using a signal canceling device to incite visitors to interact more clearly with each other and the works..
