ABSOLUT L.A. INTERNATIONAL
8/15/03 to 9/7/03
MAK Center at the Mackey Apartments, 1137 - 1141 South Cochran Avenue, Los Angeles, CA
Selected video works related to the work of current and former MAK Center Residents were shown at a special screening. Works by Una Szeemann, Suwan Laimanee, Christoph Kumpusch and Elias Nahamias in collaboration with Lorenzo Rocha Cito were shown. The screening was held on Friday, August 29 at 8 p.m.
Christoph Kumpusch designed, built, and “un-built” archetypal outdoor objects to establish a social function for the rooftop space of the Mackey Apartments. Experimenting with common everyday materials to create forms that proposed a program of leisure and summertime activity for guests, Kumpusch’s installation accommodated poolside suntanning as well as the performative activities of fellow resident Suwan Laimanee.
