To start the evening, Pauline Mikó presents PLUIES, a sound and performance project. A system of sensors and electrodes connected to the leaves of plants and to the artist's body, generates a bioelectric exchange and transforms it into sound by means of a modular synthesizer. The sound waves are then modulated to produce music. Mixing nature and technology, Pauline Mikó offers a unique sensorial experience that places organic life at the centre of our communities and permits dialogue with nature.
The concert by Cyborg Amzon, alias Diana Dobrescu, transports the listener to a completely different aesthetic atmosphere. From the intergenerational to the interface, Diana Dobrescu, and her digital identity Cyborg Amazon, don an audio costume to regenerate the ecofeminist message and, in the artist's own words, "to rediscover and transmit the feminine power that was destroyed by the patriarchy."
The evening will end with a truly gripping experience. Chair futur is an evolving project initiated by artists Małgorzata Rabczuk and Mélanie Peduzzi. It explores and affirms an ecofeminist stance in a future lying between utopias and dystopias. The artists are invited to show a phase of their work by means of a screening. These sequences are meant to be recorded on chips and implanted in different parts of the artists’ bodies during their performances. The sequences can then be viewed by audiences who capture the chips’ data using their smartphones to scan the performers’ bodies.
