Commencing January 22nd Five Car Garage is pleased to present SIREN – a group show featuring 9 LA-based artists (and 1 from Queens, NY): Adrienne Adar, Alison O’Daniel, David Hendren, David Schafer, Jesse Fleming, Jennifer Sullivan, Kelly Kleinschrodt, Pascual Sisto, Scoli Acosta and Stephanie Taylor all of whom utilize or reference sound in their work, encompassing a wide range of disciplines and materials. A Siren exists as both a warning signal and an alluring mythological sea creature. In our case, the Siren presents an urgent entreaty to the audience to focus and listen. Two soundbaths in the new meditation space above Five Car Garage will accompany the show as well as several talks and performances (details updated regularly).
Due to the experiential nature of the work, the gallery will not have a public opening, but smaller RSVP only by appointments/groupings. Siren runs for 2 months: Jan 22- March 18th 2016.

David Schafer’s sculpture “Two one of a Kind” is based on cassette tape recording of Umberto Eco lecturing at Stanford University in 1987 about Fakes and Originals. David Hendren’s “Varision 1” draws from John Cage’s “Variation” scores. The work’s loose approach to the idea of musical scores, coupled with elements of chance, tie in Cage’s methodologies. Kelly Kleinschrodt’s video ‘vvater cut’ series, speaks to the artist’s desire to catch and filet a fish alongside her father while simultaneously disrupting and destabilizing information that has been passed down for generations within her own family.
In “Pink Constellation”, Scoli Acosta reveals the third in a series of Pentagonal Monochrome (tambourine) arrangements that draw upon the ancient idea of the Music of the Spheres.
David Schafer (USA, b. 1955) received his MFA from the University of Texas, Austin (1983). He has exhibited extensively in the United States and Europe, including The Sculpture Center, New York (2004), Contemporary Museum of Art, Baltimore, Maryland; The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, and The Norton Simon Museum, Pasadena, CA.

This includes live improvisational and composed sound performances, collaborations, events, and sound transmission sculptures and installations. He is a published writer and recent publications include “Separated United Forms” by Charta Press, Milan, and “Site of Sound #2: Of Architecture and the Ear” edited by Brandon LaBelle, Errant Bodies Press, Berlin. His sound performance in conjunction with the 2010 Whitney Biennial was recently included in “Noise Channels: Glitch and Error in Digital Culture”, by Peter Krapp, Minnesota Press. A recent project includes “The Schoenberg Soundways,” at USC in March of 2015.
