Mario De Vega

Smells Like Teen Spirit

Label: Tochnit Aleph

Format: CD

Genre: Sound Art

In stock


Smells Like Teen Spirit is premised in a haptic interrogation of each of the label's previous editions. Berlin-based and Mexico City-born multi-disciplinary artist Mario de Vega occupied the gallery space of Rumpsti Pumsti (Musik) for three consecutive days in October 2016 with a hitherto complete Tochnit Aleph catalog, sanding machine, hammer, and recording equipment. Conflating acts of "playing" with destruction, de Vega took to the recorded works and assorted media with his Spartan toolset, and produced a discordant document of him repurposing the complete archive. Reducing the material to a collection of detritus for exhibition, the sound object is presented as both a conceptual remainder of the site-specific process, and an agitated extension to the label. Six-panel digipak; Edition of 300.
