FREE & all welcome
SPACE presents Zoe Kreye's Exhibition Opening
alongside First Contact, an evening of visuals and electronic music featuring Irene Dresel / The Third Body / Zeta as part of Art Night Associate Programme 2017.
Zoe Kreye (b. 1978, Canada) uses forms of embodiment to create interdisciplinary art projects that explore transformation, collective experience and negotiations of public. For her SPACE commission Kreye is collaborating with St Joseph’s Hospice to explore the complexities of loss and the transformations it can induce. For this exchange, movement techniques, sculpture and allegory are used to place focus onto the body to encourage speculative fictions.
First Contact will connect East London to the vastness of space-time and channel other forms of consciousness through a series of performances blending electronic music, science-fiction, visuals and an interstellar light installation. Throughout the night, short messages will be flashed to the attention of alien intelligence under the form of light Morse signals.
Line-up: Irene Dresel / The Third Body / Zeta
Irène Drésel devotes herself day and night to electro-techno music surrounded by the peaceful wheatfields. Her hypnotic groove is both monastic and orgasmic.
The Third Body is a mutant environment crossbreeding visuals, voice, animal behaviors, science-fiction and electronic music. Coupled with sensations of avalanches and collapsing matter, The Third Body delves into interspecies music and communication : flickering signals, foraging and echolocation, bioluminescence and stroboscopic bacteria.
Zeta is London based audio visual artist / musician. Influences range from YMO, the occult, psilocybin advocate Terrance McKenna, the BBC radiophonic workshop, Francis Bebey, Bruce Haack, The KLF, Mort Garson and Alan Moore's Idea Space (aka the collective unconscious). zeta's fourth album Vermilion is out now.
Art Night 2017 will see London’s East End transformed with free art and music by some of the world’s leading artists for the night of Saturday 1 July 2017 . Audiences will be able to experience a trail of art, architecture, dance, design and music throughout the night. Art Night 2017 is in collaboration with the Whitechapel Gallery and curated by independent curator and writer Fatoş Üstek. The festival is generously supported by international auction house Phillips.
