An Interview with Roger Gastman about “Rooms”

Rooms is a new exhibition that opens up at Scion Space this Saturday (4/24) in Los Angeles. Curated by Roger Gastman, the show features 8 individual installations by artists Adam Wallacavage, Bill Daniel, Chris Stain, Dan Monick & Caitlin Reilly, Dueling VHS, Justin Van Hoy, Kime Buzzelli, and Rocky Grimes.  I sat down with Roger via the internet and asked some questions.

Why “Rooms”?

I wanted to do something that creatively utilized the 4,500-square foot space at the Scion Gallery.

Roger Gastman Goes To The Movies

I went and saw The Runways on opening night. If ya know my ass, you know I really like punk. Like I love it. Like I have mad punk rock collections of shit. Like old shit – not new stuff. New stuff is not so hot.

Roger Gastman goes to the Movies

Shit! I did a double header – and I know it aint even baseball season yet. But they be down in spring training swinging those bats – getting drunk and riding speed boats. I dedicate my last Saturday night to them. The baseball players on the “roids” – don’t get caught!

I started the evening at the lovely Americana in Glendale California. Did you know you can get an apartment/condo there? At the MALL! I could live at the mall – I would be home now. And I would be so so so so happy. I mean even just a weekend get away bungalow – one bedroom joint! What what! Did I mention it was at the mall?

Roger Gastman goes to the Movies

I went to see Crazy Heart last night. Before you can ask me why the hell I went to see it, I will give you the reasons: It is a movie about an old country drunk. I like movies about drunks. They are usually funny, and throw up on themselves. Also drunks bang messed up looking tail. Who doesn’t like to see dudes bang messed up looking tail?  And also, the most important thing, incest.

Wise and I decided with some help from Zio and Shelley that taking down a whole baskin robins ice cream cake was a good idea. It was great idea. It’s the pizza we ate right before it that wasn’t such a good idea. Also the blue icing was more like playdough. All in all we did a good job I feel. The guy who owned the store thought we were nuts. Zio also helped out a little.

Just thinking about it makes me feel all toasty inside.
Now all we need is some lemonade and some bits of asparagus for flair.
