Oneohtrix Point Never performs Reliquary House
March 29, 2013
Boston-born musician Daniel Lopatin—who records under the name Oneohtrix Point Never—and visual artist Nate Boyce join forces to present the multimedia performance Reliquary House. Boyce’s hallucinatory computer-generated films, featuring models by modernist sculptors Isamu Noguchi, Anthony Caro, and David Smith, are accompanied by OPN's throbbing electronic soundscapes. Depicting the sculpture in impossible and incongruous physical landscapes, Boyce and OPN reframe our memory of the past into an ecstatic and fantastical future.
Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) is a musician whose work has brought him to the forefront of the modern electronic composition scene. His albums Replica and Rift have been praised by Wire, Pitchfork, Fader, Guardian UK, The Quietus, and XLR8R. OPN’s arrangements manage to touch upon both mainstream and discarded electronic music histories. His music has been heard at clubs and concert halls around the world as well as MoMA, NY; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Centre Pompidou, Paris; and the Royal Festival Hall, London.
Nate Boyce is a San Francisco–based visual artist. He was featured in the 2010 California Biennial and has had recent solo shows at Altman-Siegel, San Francisco, and IMO, Copenhagen. He participated in group shows at Vilma Gold, London; Jack Hanley, San Francisco; Christopher Grimes Gallery, Los Angeles; The Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, Omaha; Landings Project Space, Oslo; Deitch Projects, New York (curated by Takeshi Murata); Ullens Center For Contemporary Art, Beijing; Galerie Neue Alte Bruecke, Frankfurt; Center for Contemporary Art, Glasgow; CCA Wattis Institute, San Francisco; and the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art.
