Well past the point when I should have posted, here’s some lovely documentation of the installation and performance project that WYRDOS made for WRECK CITY 2018 in Calgary, this past summer.
WYRDOS is Sarah Smalik, Sara Tilley and Jamie Tognazzini. During the 2 month residency, we worked in a defunct radio station recording studio, inspired by an old newspaper clipping on Charlie Chaplin’s films that we found onsite. The result was MODYRN TIMEZ, an interactive installation and performance which sees the species Charlie Chaplinus ‘happy in his comfortable cell.’ Photos by Mike Tan. The Wreck City documentary by Polina Teif includes an excerpt on WRDOS featured below. We are the third artist/collective in the film.
