I Miss Mystery - Mario Zoots at Illiterate

How Mario Zoots' speaks about his images, how he looks and speaks about others' work, is painstakingly important. In not only aesthetics, but also in the all-out war he's staging against our new ventures of pop culture. What people mean to one another, what an image can and of course will become, what obsessions and means to wholeness the art world must go to to achieve a satisfaction of absolutes. These are philosophies Mario accomplishes with 'Zine etiquette, video swagger, and racked-off-the-shelf magazine rearrangements.

 

There's a modern mystery to the internet. Facelessness, identity obscured by text and syntax, re-appropriation & distribution of images and video. In the subtleties of madness and misdirection of internetting, scientific bounds have been lost. The search engine deities have been crawled to and typed in as the oracles of the age, and it is their filtered prophecies which many turn to with blind faith. Still, pioneers of the scientific mind remain standing among the message-boarders, vlogosphere dynamos, and outright pusher/pimps of new thought and speech. Mario Zoots is one of these pioneers. A method still applies to his meandering of video and eBay and Wikilink journeys. He catagorizes by genus, species, sub-species, kingdoms. These are his Wants, his Needs, and his Futures. In his wants you find t-shirt memorobilia, electronic monoliths, images of Occult beauty. In his needs lie lists of igneous and metamorphic rock, crystals from Brazil, the look in one's eye, the everchanging discourse of secret handshakes. Just one thing though is categorized in Zoots' Futures: Mystery.

 

Mario Zoots' solo exhibition "I Miss Mystery" Opens Friday February 5th at Illiterate and runs through February 28th.
