THE GIRL WHO NEVER WAS (by Erik Bünger)
THE CAROUSEL (by Soda_Jerk)
Erik Bünger and Soda_Jerk will each present a lecture performance that corresponds with their works exhibited in the gallery. The artists’ internationally-renowned 60-minute lecture performances form contemporary iterations of a medium that has become popular since the 1960s, sitting between performance art and pedagogy.
Erik Bünger’s THE GIRL WHO NEVER WAS (2013) is the final in a trilogy of works that takes us on a winding trip through history – a history where a voice echoes forwards and backwards through time, retroactively changing history and changing the present from the vantage point of the past.
The Carousel (2011) by Soda_Jerk traces an alternative history of film as a burial crypt where we collectively commune with the dead. A live narration navigates through an eclectic matrix of film samples producing a multi-channel video essay where it makes perfect sense to conjoin media theory, mysticism, deconstruction, kung-fu, vintage sci-fi, zombie flicks and techno horror.
Time 7:30pm (Approximate running time: 120 minutes with a 20 minute interval between performances)
This performance will be Auslan interpreted for our deaf and hard of hearing patrons.
All tickets $15
