Whitney Gibson and Shelley Holcomb (Whits & Giggles)
October 6, 2017 through January 7, 2018

ISP (Internal Service Provider) is an immersive and interactive site installation that seeks to create a space for introspection and guidance in a challenging 21st Century world.

Whits & Giggles is a creative collaboration between Los Angeles-based artists Whitney Gibson and Shelley Holcomb. Seeking to normalize sexuality and speak candidly about sex from a female perspective, Gibson and Holcomb’s collaborative works explore topics of sensuality, gender, and identity. What began in 2014 as an opportunity to ‘girl talk’ using a public radio format, has led to an exploration of cultural norms, the human psyche, and an examination of all things sexual through the eyes of two contemporary women of color.

And Then The Sun Swallowed Me

“I have this terrifying thought from my childhood. One day, without notice, the sun will become a red giant and in its death throes, will swell and swallow our planet, and all of us along with it. Alive.” - Heather Gordon

Sophocles wrote Oedipus, Oedipus at Colonus and Antigone in the 5th century BC (about 2500 years ago). The plays have been produced regularly since then. They were written as part of the Festival of Dionysus which itself was a religious ceremony that morphed over the years into something like what we think of as theatre today, when Thespis stepped from the Chorus and “performed” a role for the first time (that we know of) in human history. Athens was then a ‘City-State’ with the most powerful army and navy in the world and it dominated the known world. Sophocles plays are extraordinary in that they challenged the accepted religious dogma and the supremacy of the State. In short, they were radical to the max!
