Internet Outage

To pile on the internet difficulties I've had as of late, I am now without internet at the apartment. It's been that way for about 10 days now. Currently I'm posting from school, but I'm considering this an announcement of indefinite haitus until I can get my own internet up and running again. Sorry to disappoint everyone. Hopefully I'll be back online in a few days, but that's what I was hoping a week ago so I'm not making any promises.

at the "Temple of the Dying King"
525 Atlantic Ave, Brooklyn, 11205
December 4th, 2009 - January 5th, 2010

The Flaming Fire Art Collective has created a festive and mesmerizing holiday installation entitled "ETERNAL CHRISTMAS: A YULETIDE DREAMLAND, 2009" exploring the mythological and cultural roots of the winter season.  The work is inspired by an authentic desire to reconnect humanity to the ritualistic nature and magic of the winter solstice, a time to reflect upon and examine the transitive nature of life and death.  This month long residency at 525 Atlantic Avenue in a formerly vacant storefront will combine live musical performances, ritualistic light installations, handmade sculptures and costumes all driven by a unifying sense of beauty and horror, a holiday vision of pathos, pain and power.

ETERNAL CHRISTMAS: A YULETIDE DREAMLAND, 2009 is situated within a sprawling installation entitled the "Temple of the Dying King" created by Chicago based visual artist Camilla Ha (b. 1972) and the Flaming Fire Art Collective, featuring a series of rooms originally conceived in a dream:  A grandmother's house filled with birds of prey, Egyptian goddesses, smoking volcanoes and platters of cookies; an ominous dark night room with scattered hermaphroditic bodies lying in shallow pools of water; and a white crystalline bandshell where musical acts perform in an icy fortress of solitude.

ETERNAL CHRISTMAS: A YULETIDE DREAMLAND, 2009 will feature regular live concerts by a rotating cast of live musicians including house band LYDSOD, "a Brooklyn-based psychedelic all-star superband (Brian Turner, WFMU)" who will be recording a full-length christmas album from start to finish during the residency, legendary Goth-Bluegrass superstar Dame Darcy, multi-media artist Alyssa Taylor Wendt, an interactive illustrated bible art-book project, the Flaming Fire fitness band (not a marching band, a running band), famed graphic novelist Lauren Weinstein, live projections, a website documenting the collective's activities ( and a meditative atmosphere where visitors can sit and reflect upon the transformational magic and ritualistic mysteries of life during the darkest days of the year.

This month long residency is made possible by the Art Assets and ISSUE Project Room.  An ongoing schedule of events will be available on our "events" page.
