Volta NY 2014. Adam Mysock & Katja Loher



What better way to see an art fair than on radio. Host Daniel Durning captures the sights and sounds from the floor of The Volta Art Fair at 82 Mercer Street in SoHo during Armory Week 2014. This episode features the Allegories and Narratives of two distinct artist: video artist Katja Loher and painter Adam Mysock. Recorded onsite March 8, 2014.
 
New Orleans-based Adam Mysock is a revisionist history painter who is preoccupied by the role that the image plays in the fabrication in our collective memory. His masterful painting technique and resultant work repaint yesterday’s imagery with narrative embellishments, rewrite the narratives of the past, tells stories that challenge the source of truth. He also has a thing for robots. Mysock is represented by the Jonathan Ferrara Gallery, New Orleans, LA.
   
Swiss video artist Katja Loher is a next generation innovator. Her work takes video another step further away from conventional presentation; It exists within wall-mounted hand-blown glass bubbles. By peering into these glass orbs, the viewer enters a parallel universe entirely scripted, choreographed and filmed by the artist. Loher is represented by the C24 Gallery New York, NY.
