EVENT: WP Gallery Presents: DISTORT "The Crusades" (Opens Nov. 7th 2015)





"Similar to the time of the European Renaissance, we live in an age where wealth and prosperity are syphoned from areas of the globe and consolidated in others, leaving behind great despair.  For those of us fortunate enough to live in a relatively safe and stable environment, the prevalence of violence and chaos in the world surrounding us can induce a constant stress.  To know that your comfort is at the expense of people elsewhere (and even the planet itself) indicates that your position is unsustainable and likely to be threatened by what the future may bring.  In today’s tumultuous world, it would be strange not to have a pit in your stomach.  Instead of suppressing this feeling, imagine that pit as an actual place that expands in space beyond your physical presence.   Exploring this space, you become more aware of your context in the story of time.  As humans, we evolved to adapt to the land that we inhabit, in a sense defining our every inner urge . Even the laws of many religions are tied to the land, rooted in agricultural significance and developed to help mankind reap the potential bounty of the earth and avoid it’s perils.  Eventually these religions took on a territorial element of their own and we see war being waged on their behalf throughout history. As the decedents of war, this connection between land and spirituality is imbedded in our identity.  In other words, we may inhabit space, but space also inhabits us.  -DISTORT
 
I've been watching this show develop for quite sometime now and I must say that Distort absolutely killed it.  I personally am recommending that everyone makes it out to witness what he's put together. It's a solid show... be there. Doors open at 7pm.  -Serringe

  1. I attended a few company events here and I must say that I was impressed every time. The place was aesthetically pleasing with very good decorations and seats. The best karaoke bar nyc had a great layout overall, and was at a comfortable temperature.
