Colorless, Odorless and Tasteless Killer Video Game

02.22.11 Marina Galperina

Bring quarters to the San Francisco solo exhibit of Brooklyn’s artist-provocateur/art thief duo Eva & Franco Mattes a.k.a. 0100101110101101.org. They’ve been tinkering with a vintage Pole Position arcade game so it spews carbon monoxide, building “a videogame that kills people (?!?!?).” Yup, ?!?!? is what we thought last time, when the Mattes smuggled a “radioactive” carnival ride out of Chernobyl.

Other projects exhibited include their IRL cat meme sculpture that the artists passed off under the name of Maurizio Cattelan and artifacts from their video combat game trolling and Chat Roulette suicide performance, which are potentially less hazardous… in theory. “Colorless, Odorless and Tasteless,” Eva and Franco Mattes aka 0100101110101101.ORG, Cain Schulte Contemporary Art, San Francisco
