Rebecca Fin Simonetti

“Fantasia Rising”

This Thursday Huntclub is presenting the exhibition “Fantasia Rising” by Rebecca Fin Simonetti.  Including recent drawings, sculptures and installation works, which deal with themes of girlhood and cultural fantasies.

“For the first time, Fin will be displaying Part of Your World – a video installation showing the artist performing a song from Walt Disney’s The Little Mermaid to Chinese factory workers. On opening night, Fin will unveil a large time-based installation – in which a mountain of Adderall and eye shadow is dissolved in fountain of psychedelic trash. Installed alongside Fin’s works on paper, FANTASIA RISING is an invitation into a visceral and intimate world defined by fantasy and ambiguity.”


Thursday OCT 31st 10:30pm

@VideoFag 187 Augusta Ave

Six Small Sermons About Satan //

Kenneth Anger’s Lucifer Rising

 “This event, part sewing circle, part encounter group, part story telling event, asks the question about what happens when a sociologist, an Oxford educated Anglican priest, a curator/writer, a metal musician and critical and sculptor meet on this most occult night to talk around legendary filmmaker Kenneth Anger’s Lucifer Rising.

These short sermons use Anger’s film to springboard a discussion of everything the film talks about but critics don’t. This is a conversation about the glamour of Satan, how He is represented, what the implications of the figure is, in these post-secular age having the film work as a kind of fun house mirror.”

“A light in the Moon”

By Geoffrey Farmer

1 November 2013 – 11 January 2014

“A Light In The Moon refers to Gertrude Stein’s 1914 poem which breaks from a possible ‘sensible decision’ to a litany of options, possibilities, excitements and creations. Often playful, Farmer’s work leads us to renegotiate how we look at objects, and the meanings they elicit. In gathering histories, stories, objects, sounds, and images through poetic and theatrical installations, Farmer prompts wonder and undermines and disrupts the very concept of categorization or an encyclopedia of the world in which we live. Underlining such ideas is the capacity for anything, an object or an artwork, to alter its role and significance alluding to continual transformation and the potential for change.”


Sunday 3rd November 7:30 to 11:30
