About the Artist:
Born in Sevilla Spain in 1979, Carmen Carmona is a media artist whose trademark Movalatex functions as both an artistic identity and legal brand-name registered in 2004 with the Spanish Ministry of Industry and Commerce. In this guise she has developed a line of products that she promotes in such street actions as Movalatex Karaoke. In addition, she has collaborated with Anneke Gräper (Germany), Gabriele Pichler (Austria) and Christiane Spatt (Austria), as a member of the artist collective PASS-PROJECT, to explore the internet as a psychogeographic environment. Their recent videoconference Instructions to Be Happy in Life involved a webcast wherein the artists, stationed in different locations, engaged the public to simultaneously perform various collective movements and actions across different spatial, temporal and geographic zones.
About FREE SHOW:
FREE SHOW is a series of interactive works taking place in the corner windows of an apartment building in the landmark district of Weehawken Street. Visible from the Hudson River Park and the West Side Highway, FREE SHOW will feature site-specific projects by artists who transgress the threshold between the public and private spheres of home and street with interactive exchanges, services and performances.
