Dorian Wood returns with his newly-reconfigured chamber orchestra for two nights only, March 21 and 22, at Human Resources in Chinatown, Los Angeles. The performances will take place inside a monumental-scale installation entitled "Deflated/Defeated". Designed by artist Jacqueline Bell Johnson, the sculptural environment is inspired by the mythology behind Dorian's latest album, Rattle Rattle: a document of the end-times as triggered by the appearance of thousands of elephants in the sky. During designated moments throughout the evening, audience members will be invited to experience the performance from different points within the installation.
DORIAN WOOD is "armed with a vocal charisma that would befit a preacher and an experimental streak that would make avant-gardists swoon" (WNYC Culture). A wunderkind with a headstrong DIY discipline, Dorian has brought his emotionally-charged performances to concert halls, museums, music venues and performance spaces throughout the US, Mexico and Europe, with a voice that channels the skill and ferocity of such auteurs as Scott Walker, Nina Simone, Nick Cave and Tom Waits.
Dorian's performative works have been presented at such institutions as REDCAT (Los Angeles), Los Angeles County Museum of Art, UCLA, Highways Performance Space (Santa Monica), Pacific Design Center (West Hollywood), The Stone (New York City), Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco), the Brut Theater (Vienna), Botanique (Brussels) and the Stockholm Fringe Fest (Sweden). Most recently, he released his second studio album, Rattle Rattle, which features over 60 musicians.
JACQUELINE BELL JOHNSON is an artist living and working in the Los Angeles Area. She recently completed her MFA in Visual Art at Claremont Graduate University. Her work consists mostly of installation and sculpture, and the occasional collaboration. The process often starts by drawing out concepts, which stand as artworks on their own.
Her work explores the intersection of organic and architectural structures, by utilizing repetition of form and craft processes, with an undercurrent of feminism and the feminine experience.

Just Ignore Me
Jacqueline Bell Johnson
curated by Yoony Takeuchi
Nestled in a studio apartment in conservative/ethnic Orange County are the works of artists who present their medium in light of their own negotiations with society’s limitations. The basis of this undercurrent is a feeling of non-militant-but-not-without-
serious-concern-and-intention-almost-to-the-point-of-passive-aggressive. It is up to the viewer whether that social negotiation finds a conclusive end or remains lost in dissonant limbo.
Thursday, October 24th 7-10pm
on view by appt through October 30th.
