from patrick :
Flaming Fire has been collaborating with a group of amazing artists who have flown in from all over the country to work on a holiday-themed art installation in a downtown storefront, at the request of a very large, established organization that specializes in bringing "business, culture and artists together" in Brooklyn.
This organization has abruptly informed us that they changed their minds this week, and that the space is gone. I'm currently hosting two artists in my house, a Hollywood film-set designer/architect and a sculptor from Chicago, who expected to begin installing their work on Tuesday.
We are very interested in working with any storefront, arts organization, gallery or loft space that would be interested in hosting a multi-media installation. Our group has already invested thousands of dollars and weeks of collaborative labor into this project, and we can assure you it will be a stunning, beautiful and thought-provoking addition to your space.
If you know of anyone who might be interested, please email me at: patrick(at)flamingfire.com
FLAMING FIRE would like to create a holiday installation that explores the mythological and cultural and roots of the holiday season. This would include:* a beautiful window display with original sculptures* an ongoing illustration kiosk, with community members invited to contribute illustrations to the project and upload them to a website online.* an indoor installation that incorporates live projected video, music, dramatic staging, sculpture, artistic lighting, created by cutting-edge NYC professionals.* a winter fitness run through Brooklyn with the Flaming Fire Fitness Band.* local community members would be invited to observe or participate in the creation and performance of this project
Flaming Fire is a Brooklyn-based collective focused on metaphysics in art. Envisioned is a space committed to the active participation of community members in the process of art making. Through a synthesis of performance and ritual, a multi-media environment of sound, sculpture, and theatre provide a basis for an open resource geared towards distinguishing the role of art in our daily lives. Current projects include an illustrated Bible produced by hundreds of participants, and a musical fitness troupe that combines health and music.
