Nick Madden: I’ll Die High
February 21st through March 27th

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

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.

Nick Madden is an artist and art teacher from Atlanta. He is a recent Hambidge Fellow and a resident of The Creatives Project. Nick has shown work in galleries across the city. I’ll Die High is Madden’s second solo show. Learn more about Nick Madden here:

An ever evolving free improv ensemble of musicians, performers and other artists. By design, in a constant state of flux. But always original and eclectic.

A new project from Stickfigure records recording artist Serson Brannen. Best Known for his award winning avant-garde electronic/spoken word project, The Subliminator, he has taken an entirely new and different direction with a very new and very different instrument, The Hang. In Sonitus Lux is an ever evolving free improv ensemble of musicians, performers and other artists. By design, in a constant state of flux but always in the moment, original and eclectic. To attend an In Sonitus Lux performance is to witness the moment of sonic art’s creation.
