Arca & Jesse Kanda
TRAUMA [Scene 1]

Dahhh!!! Fooled you, fuck-o. This isn’t NEW-NEW Arca. It’s just the first cut of &&&&& (TMT Review) in support for a new video project Jesse Kanda made called TRAUMA [Scene 1]. Here’s the scoop:

Trauma is an ongoing film project by Jesse Kanda and Arca first exhibited at MOMA PS1 at the end of 2013. The film follows a nonlinear narrative about the death of a salaryman, a drunk driving infant and takes place within a subconscious world. TRAUMA’s score will span through Arca’s existing and future works.

Scene 1 depicts a trio of disfigured children locked in synchronised dance, celebrating their inner and outer beauty in the limelight.

The Film in its entirety will be shown in various galleries through out the world over the course of this year..

Also, the press releases manager at my work just came up to me on break convinced WWIII is about to happen because of this Malaysian airplane gone missing. Thanks for wasting my break, boss. P33P!
