Ongoing - 'Norma' by Valentina Stocco
A 4-day durational performance focuses on the similarities between simulation and simulacrum with images and memories. ‘Norma’ consists of a printed crochet piece which Valentina will be re-working on, performing with to create an echo with the process of remembering, to which the image itself is linked. The gesture presented by the artist request an active participation from the viewer on the act of re-inscription of a memory.

“I am an authentic fake
I have faked my way into living
I have faked that you know me
I have faked that you don’t
I am an actor “the world is my stage”

Lola’s performance would be based on the artworks and installation she is presenting focusing on the use of the female voice in AI, systemic misogyny.
The Authentic Fake is the culmination of a programme exploring the nature of reality. After looking into the way we receive and decipher sensorial information in Decoding Sensations and diving into altered states of consciousness with [IN]sane, we are turning our eyes to the world of hyperreality, where the real has been replaced by its own representation.
The current state of technology, the explosion of information and mass media, the dissolution of the materiality of objects, and the primacy of images in Western societies, have changed the way we define ourselves both individually and collectively. We are using the idea of hyperreality to question and destabilise concepts such as identity, gender, veracity, origins and social order, touching on subjects like simulation & copy, collective narratives, organic vs inorganic, fact & fantasy, and the consequences in social and political discourse.
