Intimacy and In.yer.face

July 20th, 8 p.m. (NZ time)

Intimacy and In.yer.face is a live performance/installation event and 
remix project, featuring an interdisciplinary selection of local and 
international artists, operating in the nexus between art and 
technology. Our conception of site is fragmented when agents 
participate from spatially dispersed locations, and when the 
boundaries between online and physical performative space are 
blurred. Intimacy and In.yer.face explores this fragmentation, the 
endless and cyclical encoding and decoding of information that occurs 
in the interface between humans and machines. Curated by Daniel 
Agnihotri-Clark, Intimacy and In.yer.face commences with a one-night 
event featuring simultaneous live performances and interactive 
installations, linked by real-time streaming of audio and video 
signals which will be broadcast over the internet.  The event will 
feature new works by the globally dispersed cyberformance troupe 
Avatar Body Collision (New Zealand, London, Helsinki), the 
interdisciplinary artist Kartini Thomas (Wellington), 
aerialists/actors Pipi-Ayesha Evans and Rhys Latton (Wellington), and 
audio/video artists Emil McAvoy and Damian Stewart (Wellington).

The performance/installation event will take place on July 20th in 
the former Dominion Museum Building, Wellington (8 p.m. NZ time), at 
a mystery location in Paris (10 a.m. FR time), and everywhere else 
via http://www.intimacyandinyerface.net.  Intimacy and In.yer.face is 
truly a simultaneously local and global event, pushing the 
understandings of site and indeterminate modes of performance 
practice in the interface with technology. Intimacy and In.Yer.Face 
follows last year's Indeterminacy and Interface - the first of 
performance event curated by Daniel. These projects form a 
significant component of his on-going doctoral research at the Massey 
University School of Fine Arts.

Following the performance/installation event, an open call for remix 
will expand the role of the audience, facilitating active 
participation and dialogue.  Audio and video files will be available 
for download from www.intimacyandinyerface.net. This remixed material 
will then be collated into a limited edition DVD release.
