The Kim Kardashian Party. March 17, 2012
Los Angeles. Once in a lifetime does an event this epic come along, so whatever you are doing on March 17, 2012 – cancel it immediately because here’s where you need to be: 1460 Naud Street for Xvala’s “the Kim Kardashian Party.”
Here’s more on the event:
Fear Google artist XVALA will be exhibiting his latest collection of work created from trash found while “dumpster-diving” through the trash bins of Kim Kardashian. The Kim Kardashian Party exhibit will feature his latest sculpture of the celebrity’s emotionlessly deflated basketball and will be held at a rooftop event in Los Angeles this weekend.
“Slammed and Dunked,” a life-size fabricated sculpture of the basketball salvaged from the celebrity’s residential trash, was primarily inspired by Kardashian’s recent failed marriage to NBA star Kris Humphries and the questioned authenticity of their acclaimed marriage.
The sculpture was created out of a ‘recycled resin’ formulated from remaining leftover garbage that was also collected from the Kardashians’ trash bin. Also, a part of the collection is candid mobile phone self-portraits of the reality star that she took for Twitter and Instagram, which are backed with aluminum, also partially recycled from her personal garbage. “By deleting everything that reveals who she really is, Kim Kardashian actually reveals her true self,” said XVALA, “You can always learn something about someone by looking at their garbage, and Kim produces a lot of garbage.”
The Karsdashian trash sculpture is the latest installment in a series of work created from the dumpster-diving of tech icons and celebrities worldwide in order to retrieve information and material in support of XVALA’s vision. Through this process, XVALA has become a local hero for tech junkies due to his recent coverage and success in the media for dumpster-diving Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Apple’s Steve Jobs, who passed away a day after the release of his personal trash.
XVALA is an American artist whose stated goal is to “disappear from the Internet.” His “Fear Google” sticker (first appearing in Silicon Valley and now appearing nationwide) is the first street art sticker designed for the “Post-PC Era.” It launched in 2010, the same year as Apple’s iPad and other Post-PC devices. XVALA‘s street works, paintings, sculptures, drawings, and Internet ideas point to society’s growing inability to disconnect from the Internet.
The upcoming The Kim Kardashian Party rooftop event is located 1460 Naud St. Los Angeles, CA 90012. The event is curated by Wil Atkinson and JB Jones of The Site UnScene. The Site UnScene works and promotes artists in the Los Angeles area in new and unique ways.
