The idea of public space is a precarious topic; if one chooses not to behave in a “respectable manner” they can often find themselves othered out in the open. Meanwhile, there are those who find that a breach of the peace can be the ultimate tool in expressing anxiety, anger, joy, sexuality and general discontent regarding structure. A Visual Disturbance is an experimental evening of performance, sound, sculpture and interactive video installation, wherein each piece serves as a platform for social disturbance all within a secluded urban space.
Taking place in active construction site, the work of four queer-identifying artists will invade a space that is already fraught with instability and slight anxiety. Each of the four artists will use a queered method of traditional practice to create new dialogues in the conversation of who and what should be regarded as “normal” in public space. The very idea of whom and what is appropriate to the public eye will act as central theme and leave viewers to question their own behavior in “polite” society.
