Los Angeles artist Claudia Parducci has long been interested in the desperation that is born of catastrophe and violence. Her 2007-2011 “Survival Project” installation consisted of a tent in the shape of a larger than life gas mask among paintings, video and utilitarian objects, such as a survivalist manual. More recent paintings depict Morse code dots and dashes containing phrases such as, “Abandon All Hope,” “Save Me and I’ll Fuck You,” or “Await Verbal Instruction” overlaid across images of burning buildings.
Parducci has shown her multi-faceted work in a number of solo, two-person and group exhibitions including Ochi Projects, LA, Sloan Projects, Santa Monica, L-Shape Gallery, Valencia, Hilger Contemporary, Vienna, Austria, Torrance Art Museum, Torrance, CA, Nye+Brown, Culver City, CA, Museum of Contemporary Art, Tijuana, Mexico, and Art Bogota, Bogota, Colombia, among others.
