I'll Die High- new work by Nick Madden Feb 21 - March 27 at Eyedrum Gallery

Eyedrum art and music gallery is proud to present “I’ll Die High,” a solo show of work by TCP resident artist Nick Madden.

Saturday Feb 21st:

Opening Reception & Performance: I’ll Die High / Nick Madden
Eyedrum / 6PM-12AM

I’ll Die High explores themes of physicality, mechanics, and humor in the face of certain death. Madden’s parents are battling life-threatening diseases: cancer and Alzheimer’s. Madden makes use of a variety of media as he takes us through his experience of slowly losing the parents he knew, either through the physical deterioration of the body, or of the slow breakdown of a mind, and makes us acutely aware of the vulnerability and fleeting nature of life and consciousness. He uses art to make sense of the past and a future, acutely aware of the moment before him. Treating the body as a machine that inevitably breaks down and dies, Madden copes with his parents’ conditions by creating playful and touching kinetic and interactive sculptures that awaken with the audience’s participation. Push, pull, and crank each piece to make it come to life in an examination of the bodily changes that Madden sees in his parents.
