A Sunday Drive

A Sunday Drive
A collaborative project by the artists: Alexa Gerrity and Marc Horowitz
Times: 1:00-4:00... Main Performance for Live Audience Scheduled for 2:00 pm and 2:30 pm.
Location: The intersection with Deep Canyon Dr. and 13902 Mulholland Drive.

Seconds after a car collision on Mulholland Drive, the drivers, dopplegangers for artists Alexa Gerrity (Amanda Rowan) and Marc Horowitz (Sterling Jones) engage in improvisation, negotiating a forced interaction at the scene of accident. As the day transpires, Marc and Alex co-direct an art film titled The Sunday Drive. Viewers stop and watch in art being made in real time. The artists not only address the effects of the alienating quality of Los Angeles on identity but also examine the Hollywood Love-Story-Plot, juxtaposed with our current media-driven popular culture. The soundtrack that is played from the car's stereos was written by Alexa and her mother,  with a melody composed by Archie Carey, then recorded by Archie Carey and Odeya Nini. Cinematography by Matt Daniels and make-up by Violet Morphine. Various installation aspects such as a mirror placed at the intersection and other text work were also integrated within the project.

"She looks like fun, I like her style...
maybe I´ll get lucky and chat her up awhile
Oh hell what am I thinking, I´ve got too much to do...
climb Mt. Everest, write a book or two.
Still, accidents happen and maybe I should think about her a moment or two...."
