Originally created for The Museum of Modern Art in New York in 2011, Reliquary House is a multimedia performance by electronic musician Oneohtrix Point Never and visual artist Nate Boyce.
Oneohtrix Point Never and Boyce re-imagine the canon of modernist sculpture through hallucinatory reconstructions of works by David Smith, Jacob Epstein, Anthony Caro and more. Boyce uses computer-generated imagery to transform these sculptures into kinetic apparitions that inhabit incongruous and "impossible" landscapes and architectural environments.
Abetted by OPN's sound design, Boyce reconfigures the setting of the venue, pulling historical art objects into a new context.
With special guests: Eli Keszler & Megafortress
