Lucas Murgida Art Project

  • Grand Central Art Center 125 N Broadway Santa Ana, CA, 92701 (map)

Through performance, installation, photographic documentation, and social practice, artist Lucas Murgida creates situations that allow audience members to experience very private moments in very public situations.  Thematically, his projects address ideas of service, perception, liberation, privacy, power, and labor by utilizing his employment as research to inform his art practice. Having dissected his careers as a professional cabinetmaker, busboy, locksmith, and yoga-teacher, the artist utilizes the mundane aspects of human existence – such as furniture, locks, teachers, and service professionals – as raw material to craft artistic experiences. Murgida’s most recent research, working behind the scenes in the adult film industry, spawned an artistic investigation into the intimacy-of-the-self through the lens of judgment, privacy, commerce, privilege, and the utility of the body as a tool of labor.
