SYNOPSIS

How do we reflect in the mirror of each other? THE WALL TRANSMUTATION is a durational performance installation centered around a 6’4” x 6’4” wall of text from artist Ray Caspio’s studio composed of automatic writings recorded during their 18 month pandemic isolation. The result is a dreamlike meditation on loss, Self, sexuality, and the nature of memory inviting participants to face the walls we erect around ourselves. THE WALL TRANSMUTATION's raw vulnerability and immersive reflection in a time of lies, chaos, and fear of "the other" is a journey of acceptance toward the wholeness of ourselves, and each other, before our time is through. THE WALL TRANSMUTATION brings the story to life through paintings, audio, photography, and automatic and homoerotic drawings, with performance uniting all of the elements. Witness, be witnessed, and leave your mark on the space during Caspio’s 27 hour durational performance.
