soft . lipid . love

Chalton Gallery (London) March 2018

Installation: neon-pink floor and wall paint, neon-pink matt vinyl, striplights with neutral density filters and 6 audio-sculptures each with one recorded piece of prose.

soft . lipid . love plays on blood’s ability to move between bodies, subjectivity, intersubjectivity, material and message. The installation incorporates an enclosed pink room and a series of silicon organs, with internal audio-devices playing recorded pieces of prose, for the audience to connect onto. The voice recordings utilize onomatopoeic tropes and theatrical procedures to inflect sharply punctuated texts, allowing words and sentences to repeat and mutate within recursive sequences of digitalized breaths, shifting pitches and sexual aural tones. Through means of entanglement and seduction, the organs play with the reproduction of technological and linguistic bodies, and the performativity of their related processes
