CATCHY SYNTHPOP & CHAOTIC VISUALS: Geneva Jacuzzi
Geneva Jacuzzi – né Geneva Garvin – is an underground art pure breed and belongs to the underground music scene of Los Angeles. In her work she mixes performance with video art, synth pop, visual arts as if it’s daily business as usual. Garvin released in 2016 ‘Technophelia’, a small masterpiece: catchy synth pop full of references to the psychedelic work of scifi author Philip K. Dick.
Everything Geneva Jacuzzi does, can be described as rather unconventional. Her website is constructed via a completely outdated Apple program. She refuses touring with a band and quite prefers to assemble audio-visual performances, DIY-style. And when the renowned music platform Pitchfork tried to interview her, she shamelessly neglected that request due to “not feeling like it”.
Geneva Jacuzzi works at Gouvernement for 3 days, creating an installation and a performance together with some enthusiastic KASK-students. A first glimpse of that project will be seen and heard on Wednesday, November 8.
Organised by Vooruit and Gouvernement, as part of Geneva Jacuzzi’s 3-day residency at Gouvernement.
