Performance Date / Time / Location

Performance Summary:

This performance includes water, live bodies and projected online material. This performance will force spectators in real time and space, to situate—and if they choose, implicate—themselves in the event.

Additionally, while the project will center around the proposed live event, we will begin the performance—and relationship with potential audience members— on our blog and on YouTube. During the live event, each participant will receive an artist book multiple which will serve to extend the performance further.

Artist Statement:

As IdeaAssassins one of our main goals is to engage—via performance—with intersections between theory and practice. All of the theories that we have previously engaged with, and continue to explore are heavily mediated by the notion of water. We seek to both activate and explore contemporary forms of subjectivity, which are inherently fluid and unstable. Fueled by the placement of technology on the body, subjectivity becomes an expanded notion that takes into account and questions the body, the mind, and the tools we use in quotidian existence. This project attempts to perform and problematize these contemporary notions of the subject, and highlight forged connexions, broken binaries, and saturated, hypermediated modes of perception.
