SWAN SONG

Picture 260

Musical Performance by Morgan Gee

The End of Summer.

Temple Ad Hoc is a localization of transience, a space designed to facilitate emergence while itself passing into nullity, courting extinction. Like the swan we celebrate the seductive poignancy of death with an ambivalent song…

Formed not as a commercial enterprise but as an extended curatorial project and an experiment in planned obsolescence, Temple Ad Hoc 2012 had programming that emphasized the under-represented and unknown, from international performance art group Matej Mateka to local artists.  The space was created for the engagement of the ephemeral, for the acknowledgement of those moments of emergence when an artwork is introduced into the world like a nascent prayer.  We have on offer some work of our own, as well as a group of sophisticated young artists celebrating the death drive, the over-fullness of absence, and the dignity of suicide.
