With a potent degree of whimsy and an ethereal presence in the ‘weird’ and ‘wonderful’, multimedia artist and filmmaker Autumn Casey presents a unique series of works inside the Cranny Project Room at Primary Projects.
Conjuring a mix of a re-imagined soda advertisement, an outdated cover of ‘Addicted to Love’ (featuring Sonic Youth’s bassist Kim Gordon) shot inside a Sears photo studio, invented imagery of Nicolas Cage as Jesus Christ and petrified rotten apples (once used as home-made bongs), Casey pieces together elements of her imagination and experience into a hybrid viewing and sound experience.
As a self-confessed assembler of ‘metaphors’ and a mirror to the unusual happenings in the urban world, Casey combines these seemingly random elements into a dedicated spectacle; one which heightens the power of the unscrupulous and lures the public into the lesser-known regions of cultural ephemera.
Autumn Casey was born in Dallas, Texas and graduated from the New World School of the Arts with a focus on Sculpture. Her work has been featured as part of the Museum of Contemporary Art’s (North Miami) Open Process: New Work from Miami Artists and her short film ‘Getting Rid of all My Shoes’ was acquired by the museum’s permanent collection from her participation in Optic Nerve XII. Her work was also featured in the critically-acclaimed multimedia exhibition ‘Weird Miami’ at the Bas Fisher Invitational. Casey lives and works in Miami.
Primary Projects is a multidisciplinary space, positioned at the heart of Miami’s Design District, which aims to explore and promote multiple forms of aesthetic expression from established and emerging artists, alike. Utilizing extensive, and wholly specific, experience in producing street-level curatorial endeavors in Miami, the creative forces behind Primary Projects unites the commercial and critical efforts of artists, critics, curators, professionals and patrons; the result is the vital presence of an intelligent, alternative arts environment with an bold urban sensibility delivered through a diverse range of media.
