Creators: Schmitz, Edgar
Abstract or Description:

Surplus Cameo Decor: Sindanao 2 sees the artist reconfigure a body of works first conceived for Cooper Gallery in Dundee in 2012 with a new set of sculptural works, sound pieces and architectural interventions interspersed with live cameo appearances by art world protagonists developed for its new context at Shanghai Himalayas Museum.
Surplus Cameo Decor is an ongoing episodic series of ambient backdrops and cameo appearances which animate gallery settings as semi-fictional hubs for cinematic plots and atmospheres. Recasting the debris of arthouse cinema, future infrastructures and derelict resort architectures, Schmitz’ works populate galleries with the sprawling motifs of conjured-up remoteness and projected elsewheres.
