A call to arms – a confession – a break up via facebook messenger – a greek chorus enters an echo chamber – a radio loses signal and a television changes channels. In a time of ‘post truth’ – where language is diffusing but not dissipating – our narratives are becoming forcefully blurred. It this the duty of the writer to intervene and to be intrusive, to write emotively, truthfully and resist the symbiosis of human and toxic algorithm. Rinse, repeat, repost.
(Enter – Greek chorus into the echo chamber) is a series of text-based interventions communicated and explored by Liv Wynter during May, June and July 2017.
Participating artists and poets include Penny Goring, Caspar Heineman, Joshua Idehen, Munesu Mukombe, Katrina Palmer and Liv Wynter.
In DRAF Gallery, an open lounge displays new sculptures and posters by Penny Goring and an audio work by Katrina Palmer. Through the course of the project, the artists and poets will activate the space with readings and performances of new works, evolving written and drawn materials, and informal conversations and compositions in the space.
Concurrently, online interventions include a videos by Caspar Heinemann and Liv Wynter, a sound work by Munesu Mukombe and social media takeovers and live digital performances.
