The Ups & Downs
Marcus Civin & Candice Lin

The Ups & Downs is an installation series. The show goes up, the show goes down. Opening party on Thursday night and closing party the next night, on Friday. No time for exhibitions. Low impact, ephemeral and immersive art. People with lots of People. The market. It’s a party. Time for the underground. It’s a ball. It’s for The People. This has been made for you. Do I know you? The show must go on. Installed and De-installed. Up. Down. Now what? Now then…

The Ups & Downs:
Marcus Civin & Candice Lin
When the wind got too rough, and the ship was pitching, sailors took an axe to the mast, so the lighting wouldn’t catch. We were at the top, in the crow’s nest, tangled in the nets and in the tatters of the sails. When it was all over, we climbed out and found we had washed upon a beach of graphite sand. Shipwreck! Enormous Crow’s Nest built to reach the ceiling, stuck in and consuming the underground space at Betalevel.

Candice Lin and Marcus Civin both attended Brown University at the same time but never really met there. They both lived in San Francisco but never met there, though they had friends in common. A mutual friend, Maggie Foster, encouraged them to meet up in LA. As a result, they have been exchanging ideas for the last 2 years. Candice is planning an exhibition for Chung King Projects. Marcus is almost finished his MFA in Studio Art at University of California, Irvine.
