Olson Visual installs “The Basilisk” an exhibition by Mungo Thompson at Nikodom Gallery
Los Angeles Nikodom Gallery recently presented an exhibition of Mungo Thompson’s work titled, “The Basilik”. The name derives from a preoccupied search for divine light and higher consciousness. To showcase our fears and enlightenment, Thompson built a Google visualization program to copy our neural functions.
There were other artists who assembled their work over Thompson’s large murals. Jeremy Shaw installed a video DMT with images of young people on a psychedelic trip. Another work was by the kitsch artist Thomas Kinkade with Perseverance. Lazaros’s 999 Conductor can also be seen. Other objects were mumified cats, a sarcophagus, and sexual lubricants. All of the included pieces were almost absurd but had one credible concept: a remark on the fanatic religion that is the art world.
Olson Visual installed Mungo Thompson’s large murals throughout the gallery. This created an immersive experience and added so much to the exhibition. Check out these images of our work at Nikodom Gallery.
