Volta NY New Stance for Tomorow: Noam Gonick + Luis Jacob

Volta NY art fair presented an off site performative installation in Tribeca Grand Hotel’s Sanctum, Wildflowers of Manitoba by Noam Gonick + Luis Jacob.
The work is presented within a furnished geodesic dome whose projected films feature four young men living off the grid in an idealistic survivalist camp on the shores of Lake Winnipeg. The loosely scripted scenes establish a naturalist idyll seemingly removed from modernity and, like wildflowers, the male subjects are intimately tied to a seductive meadow that is bordered by abandoned railway tracks and virgin beaches. Staged for the camera, the set and subjects evoke a distant, more innocent era where alternative, collective lifestyles flourished. With music by visionary seventies Québécois rock band Harmonium.
