Artist LNY and Solo(s) Project House launch “PROTOCOL” with “Soy Fuego”

Newark’s Solo(s) Project House and New Jersey-based artist, LNY, have launched PROTOCOL, an eight-week residency (April 6 – June 6, 2013) that explores the creative process and the monetary issues with working in the public space.

The exhibition officially kicks off April 13, 7pm to 11pm, with the short movie screening of SOY FUEGO, a collaborative effort between LNY and Mexico City-based filmmaker Jonathan Ostos Yaber. The 12-minute short film will juxtapose LNY’s drawings with the story of a sleeping female engulfed in flames, followed by a discussion with the artists.

During this period, the Solo(s) Project House gallery (972 Broad Street, Newark, NJ) will be an open studio, host an evolving installation, serve as a meeting place for workshops, screenings, readings and a market place, where the private art is released only after it has funded the creation of free public art.

About LNY

New Jersey-based street artist LNY has left his mark in over a dozen cities worldwide and is back in his native New Jersey to create himself a new home in Newark.

“I see Newark as an open laboratory, where I can explore and build upon interior and exterior landscapes.” – LNY

LNY’s work is ephemeral, location sensitive and takes the form of murals, drawings on paper and urban interventions. His practice is akin to graphic journalism, as he both visualizes local narratives and reflects upon issues affecting the communities where his art inhabits.

About Jonathan Ostos Yaber

Jonathan Ostos Yaber, also known as “El Zombie,” is the director, animator and co-writer of the multi-award winning short film “La nostalgia del Sr. Alambre” (SIMONA GESMUNDO, Huesca, Cut Out Fest). Yaber is a graduate of the Vancouver Film School and UWE, with a specialization in character animation, 3D animation and VFX. His videos mix a wide range of techniques, including live action, stop motion, CGI, 2D, cutouts and more.

His films have travelled to more than 130 different film & animation festivals, including Cannes, Annecy, Huesca, Edinburgh International Film Festival, SICAF, Anima Mundi, SXSW, LA ShortsFest, Cut Out Fest, Morelia International Film Festival, and Comic Con.

The PROTOCOL Documentary

In addition, Newark-based documentarian Dubois Ashong will be filming the entire life of the PROTOCOL residency. DuBois has focused on contemporary and modern artists in his prior works, including stained glass artist Joseph Cavalieri, master glass blower & sculptor Jamie Harris. His most acclaimed film to date, THE GANTALIST: the art of being Jerry Gant, was featured in multiple festivals around the country.

“I see telling the artist’s story as a mission worth pursuing, because they are heroes to me. And I suppose my interest originated from my own experience growing up in a family of artists.” – Dubois Ashong
