FUTRA teams up with NATOLOGY to present a mystical visual art experience for all to enjoy. This multi-media performance will commence at 11PM at Futra presents Doubt (live) on June 26th at Complex in Los Angeles. Pseudo & Morph is curated by Natology and features Jos McKain’s art performance ‘Oxidation’ with visuals by video artist Lindsay Scoggins. Pseudo & Morph is a meditative performance on the devolution of the human body and its ability to shift into an amorphous state. This meditation is intended to diffuse gender pairing, silhouetting a nude male (McKain) and juxtaposing him against Scoggins’ signature video work. The ideas center on replication as a form of evolution, both intellectually and socially.

First the art becomes you, and then you become the art.

McKain has curated shows for Machine Project, Highways Performance Space, and EDC. His venue credits include Carnegie Hall, MOMA PS1, LACMA, and MOMA and he’s appeared in work by Ryan Heffington, WIFE, Mariana Abramovic, Scott Benzel, Daft Punk, and Mike Kelley.
