BIO

 

St Celfer (john parker) resides in São Paulo and Seattle, the latter living off/on since 1990. As an avid fan during the Seattle 90s, St Celfer, under numerous aliases, took part in 00's New York scene at venues such as Andrew Kreps, CBGB’s, and The Kitchen 

Exhibitions/Performances include:
  • Gleaned Detritus Project™ (applying painting’s ideas of plasticity to everyday inexpensive objects)
  • Listeners™ (exploring the medium of sound in sculpture)
  • jenghizkhan, earcon, Man From Planet Risk, He Goatan !M.O.O.B (making and playing music)
  • eyekhan.com & gnitcelfer.blogspot.com (presenting work online) where, frustrated with the notion of making visual work through object production, documented both images of failing digital processes and ideas for upcoming projects 
which, after living in Brooklyn, include:
  • Space Between Points™ (fighting the tyranny of the square, the urge to codify and label) with drawings currently displayed at the Museum of Contemporary Art, MAC USP, São Paulo and sounds streamed on Radio Eclectus, Hollow Earth Radio, KHUH, Seattle
  • STEP.4D™ (creating a pandemic-era 'gambiarra' to make  something to listen to during lockdown) with music featured by Bandcamp.com as NEW AND NOTABLE and played on Flotation Devices, KBCS, Seattle, and other places worldwide
  • ESDRÚXULISTA™ & Choose Your Delusion™ (continuing writing and documenting while acquiescing to the adaptive function of delusion, the need to mythologize and invent)
