    Geoffrey Farmer (92) has transformed the gallery at REDCAT (Los Angeles) into both a studio workshop as well as a theatrical space where an assembly of performers and mechanized objects act out a scripted narrative in the form of a sculptural tableau.

    Having started mid-February, Geoffrey is in residence to work on-site and create a new site-specific "sculpture play" titled Let's Make the Water Turn Black in response to the region's social history and Los Angeles' influence on the counter-cultureal movement.

    Established in 2005 by Anna Ruth (1993-96) and Juho Jappinen, House Games is a thematic art triennial that focuses on themes of home, family and house. For one week, a private apartment home in central Finland will also serve as a public exhibition space. This year's artists focus on a basic, if not primary aspect of the home: the living ephemeral experience of life (in no specific order): death, birth, play, decaying/aging, collecting and remembering. This year five lumen prints by Phyllis Schwartz (10) will be shown in House Games 2011.

    For more information, please visit House Games or visit the blog.
